A Future for Computer Based Learning? Twente Educational Memorandum Number 21.
de Diana, I. P. F.
This paper discusses the requirements for implementation of computer-based learning (CBL) and presents three examples of activities related to CBL in the Netherlands in 1979-80. Problems in developing a technology for CBL materials production are discussed, and several insights behind the development of such a technology are considered: (1) it is useful to make a distinction between the developmental systems for CBL materials and the delivery systems; (2) there is a growing tendency to use general purpose high programming languages as well as computer-assisted instruction (CAI) design languages for the development of CBL; (3) CAI is increasingly perceived to be more than an automated version of programmed instruction; (4) an emphasis on formalizing procedures for programming design and development has been emerging; and (5) work on computer-based simulation has made an important contribution to the growth of CBL technology. The problems of credibility and limited resources in creating favorable conditions for the implementation of CBL are considered, along with potential means of addressing these problems in Western Europe. Seven references (five in Dutch and two in English) are listed. (MES)
