Faculty Use of Interactive Media Technology.
Stropes, Stephen L.; Neeley, Charlotte Ann
In 1986, Columbia State Community College (CSCC) initiated the Center of Emphasis to develop interactive video and computer-assisted instruction programs for students. This charge included stimulating faculty interest in developing such programs and providing technical assistance in their production. Initially, center staff contacted faculty personally and used an interactive video tape on anatomy and physiology to make faculty aware of the technology. In addition, various incentives have been offered to faculty to encourage them to develop interactive video programs, including the assistance of center staff in the performance of the most time-consuming aspects of development, as well as the option to develop media programs to satisfy instructional improvement requirements. The center also provides faculty with the technical knowledge, guidance and assistance needed in the various stages of production. During the pre-production stage, center staff work with the faculty to create the video's objective, develop a script and storyboard, and record the audio portion of the video, which includes the interactive questions and the narration. When pre-production is completed, production of the storyboard begins, including the orchestration and filming of all live segments, still shots, modeling, and demonstrations. Finally, the post-production stage begins, as the video segments are edited and synchronized with the audio portion to ensure that there are smooth transitions between each visual image and the recorded script. After test runs, the interactive video is placed in the center laboratory for use and evaluation by student learners. From the conception of a topic to the delivery of a program to students, teamwork between the Center of Emphasis staff and the faculty is necessary to create a quality presentation. (VVC)
