A goal in this research is to learn how to use high-technology computer systems effectively in education and training. This paper reports a procedure for developing the design of interactive videodisc-based assembly instructions using IBMs infoWindow system. Research comparing interactive videodisc-based assembly instructions and passive videotape instructions is presented. Performance in building from memory an 80-piece object made from the Fischer-Technik assembly kit is assessed for six different groups. The main comparison is between groups which have interactive instructions and are allowed to build during training, and groups which have the same instructions but are not allowed to build during training. The build groups never perform better from memory than the no build groups on structure of efficiency and sometimes perform significantly worse Keywords Interactive instruction, Videodisc instruction, Multimedia instruction, Procedural instruction, Instructional design, Practice, Training, Man computer interface.
