Feasibility of an Integrated Expert Video Authoring Workstation for Low-Cost Teacher Produced CBI. SBIR Phase I: Final Report.
IntelliSys, Inc., Syracuse, NY.
This was Phase I of a three-phased project. This phase of the project investigated the feasibility of a computer-based instruction (CBI) workstation, designed for use by teachers of handicapped students within a school structure. This station is to have as a major feature the ability to produce in-house full-motion video using one of the presently-available video recording devices, such as WORM (Write Once, Read Many) drives, LaserFilm, or interactive video tape. A systematic evaluation of video storage devices was carried out, and resulted in the identification of several acceptable devices around which such a workstation could be designed. Studies of user needs for characteristics of authoring and delivery systems were also undertaken. It was found that expert systems should be incorporated into the design of the workstation to aid the teacher in designing CBI, and also to help in producing the instructional lessons. It was proposed that a new type of CBI be developed to enable the teacher to more easily design lessons structured in ways similar to the way the teacher would deliver the lesson in person.
