A Guide to Courseware Authoring Options in ESL/FL Instruction.
Hampson, S. L.
A guide to courseware authoring aids for computer-assisted language instruction (CALIS) gives suggestions for the selection and use of programing options and provides an annotated listing of those options. Introductory sections discuss the use of computer-assisted language teaching, the selection of quality courseware, the types of authoring aids available, and the elements of authored instruction. The latter sections provide detailed, step-by-step instructions for creating an instructional unit with the CALIS author program. A product registry follows, with each entry including the vendor's name, address, and telephone number, the program title, price, a description of the program's features, computer system requirements, and the program's capability to accommodate foreign languages. Software directories and projects are also listed, the programs are indexed by languages and fonts, and a bibliography is provided. (MSE)
