Abstract:

A prototype computer based instructional system has been developed to demonstrate a computer managed learning environment. In addition to its capabilities for managing, monitoring, and delivering individualized instruction as part of a multi-media instructional system, the system provides the mechanism for experimentally examining hypotheses, i.e., instructional strategies and media preference. This guide to the use of the CMI describes the hardware configurations, some of which were developed and interfaced under other tasks performed under the same contract, and the software packages written to operate the hardware and to develop course material for computer based delivery. Sample report sheets are included to demonstrate the monitoring capabilities of the system. Two courses are described to show how lesson materials are prescribed to accommodate individual differences in aptitude, motivation, progress, and preference, and the ways in which student progress can be measured by instructors and authors of course and test material.
