Programmed Instruction and Computer-Assisted Instruction - How They Can Be Used Effectively in Our Training Programs 670308
Programmed instruction, a method of teaching subject-matter without the intervention of a human instructor, is being used profitably in civilian and military aerospace applications. A more sophisticated technique which utilizes time-sharing computer systems, Computer-Assisted Instruction (CAI), provides a learner-machine relationship not previously obtainable.
The evolving roles of the participants are discussed: learner, instructor, instructional programmer, computer programmer, computer operator, and training director. Reference is made to CAI software systems and languages, and the development of “Elements of EYBOL,” a missile orientation training program is described in detail.
