  2. An evaluation of the student response to electronics teaching using a CAL package

    E.L. Dobson, M. Hill & J.D. Turner

    A computer-based replacement for an existing electronics laboratory experiment has been created and tested on a sample of second year undergraduates. Their responses were assessed by questionnaire,... More

  3. Harnessing simulations in the service of education: The interact simulation environment

    Ruth Thomas & Irene Neilson

    The failure of simulations to make headway in computer-aided education (CAE) is attributed to their high development costs and apparent lack of cost-effectiveness, and to the high levels of teacher... More

  4. Cinegrams for self-directed learning

    Detlev Fischer & Clive Richards

    A cinegram is a new type of interactive computer-based document that makes explicit use of time-based media such as animation in presenting complex technical information. A cinegram prototype,... More
