Designing and Implementing an "Intelligent" Multimedia Tutoring System for Repair Tasks: Final Report.
The University of Michigan School of Education Educational Technology Reports, v2 n1 Aug 1989
The first part of this document is the final report of a research project (1984-1989) on designing and implementing an intelligent multimedia tutoring system for repair tasks. The problem/goal and approach, equipment and implementation, experimental work, and results are discussed for three phases of research: (1) developing and testing an interactive computer-controlled videodisc-based system to help people learn to assemble an object; (2) designing, implementing, and testing a prototype videodisc-based intelligent multimedia tutoring system to help people assemble, repair, and understand an object; and (3) developing and testing several versions of a graphics-based system to help people repair an object. Eight references are listed. The second part of the document, a paper entitled "Sequencing and Access in Interactive Graphics-based Procedural Instructions," reports on a study which investigated whether sequencing of procedural instructions is important when the instructions are presented interactively and subjects are provided with well-designed free access to the information. Eight references are listed, and data tables and sample screen displays accompany the report. The third part of the document is an appendix listing 40 papers, talks, and technical reports completed in the course of this research. A directory of researchers is attached. (MES)
