The Videodisc: A Multi-Purpose Instructional Tool.
Price, Robert V.
This discussion of the laser videodisk begins by noting that it is an extremely high density visual storage medium that can supply instructors with vast visual warehouses to supplement instruction, whether through conventional group presentations or via individualized computer assisted instruction. Major features of the medium are then described with an emphasis on: (1) its cost-effectiveness; (2) its capacity for easy random access to information; (3) its capacity to handle motion video in slow, normal, and fast modes; (4) its capacity to utilize two audio tracks for high quality stereo music reproduction, dual language narration, or two different instructional tracks; (5) its durability as compared to conventional media; and (6) its ability to complement computer assisted instruction. Projected future applications of the medium are outlined. (9 references) (GL)
