Abstract:

A phase of research in technical training microform applications explores the comparative advantages and disadvantages of microform in classroom training applications. A 30-hour instructional sequence on, basic computer operation was selected. A two-stage filming procedure was used to convert the training manual used in the instructional sequence to an innovative microform format in both positive and negative film polarities. The major of the comparative analysis was to find whether Air Force trainees could use the microform systems effectively and intensively over a one-week period. The study also examines a number of considerations involved in utilizing microforms for training purposes, including the impact of microform use on instructional routine, administrative-logistics considerations, and student study habits. Significant accomplishments of thestudy were a demonstration of the feasibility of the microform medium for classroom instruction and the development of an innovative format to facilitate instructional communication.
