Interactive Video Training and Development Activity.
Troy State Univ., AL.; American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
The Interactive Video Training and Development Activity of Troy State University (Troy, Alabama) is described in this report. The project has trained more than 30 people in the production of interactive video programs since its inception in 1983. Since 1985, training programs have been offered twice a year to individuals within and outside the university. Interactive programs have been produced in such areas as mathematics, chemistry, music, reading, writing, and art, and they have been used for instructional support and training. An interactive videodisc Student Information System was developed in 1986 to give students information about academics, the campus, and student activities, services, and organizations. Participants in the project are selected from all divisions of the university. Programs produced may be used on an Apple IIe interfaced with a BCD card to a video cassette recorder, an Apple IIe interfaced with a VMI card to a videodisc player, or an IBM InfoWindow System. As a result of the success of this activity, the university has established the Interactive Media Center to offer training and consultant services to others. The major problem at this point is lack of standardization of equipment. Appended are the training application form, contract, and the learning module evaluation sheet. (Author/SM)
