Lecturing in the Future: Bringing It All Together.
For over three decades, innumerable attempts have been made to support training, teaching, and lecturing processes using computers. Results have been less than expected, and the advent of sophisticated computer based multimedia systems alone does not change this situation dramatically. However, networked variants and new ways of looking at multimedia communication are starting to provide new scenarios. It is shown how hypermedia systems can be used as a basic platform for effective multimedia delivery of lectures if backed up by a library of reference materials. A lecture based on material drawn from a fileserver, modified in real-time, and multi-cast to student workstations provides a satisfying teaching environment, and solves problems of courseware authoring, student-teacher and student-student interaction, and the use of computer-assisted instruction material and high-quality distance education. It is contended that such systems can be built with moderate effort today. The issues involved and progress in implementation were discussed in a related presentation. (MAS)
