Abstract:

The research reported on the evaluation of a computer-based course management system in a college economics course. Students acquired course information from individual reading while the computer maintained attention to the material and monitored progress. Results indicated that the course management system had facilitated the study of text and that student attitudes regarding the system were favorable. From these results it is concluded that this procedure may hold considerable promise for increasing the efficiency of military training. It is relatively easy, and therefore inexpensive, to prepare questions covering instructional materials, and the self-pacing of progress saves student time and releases instructors for important instructional interaction with students. Therefore, it is recommended that tests of the procedures be carried out in military settings to determine the feasibility of using the procedure with military students. Author
