Abstract:

In considering the development of computer assisted instruction systems over the past eleven years, one can see a pattern of interaction between advances in computer hardware and software and continuing efforts to solve the basic problems of CAI--problems of keeping the cost low, making coding and editing easier, achieving a natural-language capability--that existed from the beginning. As new equipment and higher level languages became available, solutions to one or another of these basic problems have become feasible. Now, in the fourth generation of CAI are on-line time-sharing capabilities, and a flexible language that embodies both program logic and instructional content. This pattern gives some hint of how things will proceed into the future. Author
