Computer Support for Vicarious Learning.
Monthienvichienchai, Rachada; Sasse, M. Angela
This paper investigates how computer support for vicarious learning can be implemented by taking a principled approach to selecting and combining different media to capture educational dialogues. The main goal is to create vicarious learning materials of appropriate pedagogic content and production quality, and at the same time minimize the financial cost and effort to produce such materials. This paper proposes that multimedia and television production principles can be harnessed for this purpose. The paper reports results of two case studies on collaborative learning of television production in communication arts and diagrams construction in computer science and analyzes the problems encountered in the production and use of the vicarious learning materials created. The paper concludes that, if vicarious learning is to be implemented, the problems that "educationalists" face in creating appropriate materials need urgent attention. (Contains 19 references.)
