An Integrated Computerized Instructional System for Classroom and Lab.
Treadway, Ray
Bennett College (North Carolina) has developed the use of an Integrated Computerized Instructional Support System (ICISS) featuring the use of large networked test-banks, a sophisticated test management system, application software, and multimedia. These materials are used both for interactive learning experiences in the classroom and for practice, drill, and tutorial in the computer laboratory. The system involves students in the learning process by providing interactive questions from the test-bank and visual presentation of concepts. The integration of test-banks for computer-based testing, textbooks, and electronic lecture notes allows the delivery of a variety of teaching methods and caters to a variety of learning styles. The ICISS has been set up on local area networks in two computer classrooms so that a variety of teaching/learning approaches can be used. Direct lecturing, writing on the board, class discussion, and seat work are combined with computer drill and practice and class projection of multimedia lecture materials. Learning lab activities and individualized use of these materials round out the entire teaching/learning package. At Bennett, the main use of the materials has been in teaching a variety of first- and second-year mathematics courses. (AEF)
