How To Produce Computer-Based Learning Materials. Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, 18.
A sequel to the booklet "How Computers Can Be Used in Education," this booklet begins by looking at ways in which computer-based learning (CBL) materials can be used in different types of instructional situations, i.e., mass instruction, individualized learning, and group learning. The design and production of four types of conventional CBL instructional materials are then examined: (1) number crunching (calculation) and data processing packages; (2) substitute tutor packages; (3) substitute laboratory packages; and (4) computer-managed learning packages. Guidelines for the production of interactive video materials conclude the booklet. Sample materials provided include an extract from a typical tutor-mode CBL dialog; models of drill and practice, tutorial, and simulation lessons; and a diagram of the features of an interactive video system. An annotated list of six items recommended for further reading is included. (MES)
