The uses of PLATO: a computer-controlled teaching system by Donald Lester Bitzer ( Book )
2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The use of a high-speed digital computer as a central control element provides great flexibility in an automatic teaching system. Using a computer-based system permits versatility in teaching logics since changing the type of teacher merely requires changing the computer program, not the hardware. In addition, having access to the decision-making capacity of a large computer located as one unit permits complicated decisions to be made for each student. Such capacity would be prohibitively expensive to provide by means of decisionmaking equipment located at each student station. The results of exploratory queuing studies show that the system could teach as many as a thousand students simultaneously without incurring a noticeable delay for any student's request. The educational results thus far have been extremely encouraging. However, reliable conclusions on educational achievement must await the results of more thorough experiments now in progress which include larger numbers of students learning under a variety of conditions. The adaptability and useability of the system for a variety of purposes in education and the behavioral and physical sciences have been clearly demonstrated. (Author)
