Course Description: 

The term computer-assisted instruction (CAI) refers to any use of a computer to present instructional material, provide for active participation of the student, and respond to student action. The goal of CAI is to "teach". The term "computer-based instruction" and "computer-aided learning express the same concepts. This course is designed for those interested in the design, development and evaluation of computer-assisted instruction (CAI). It introduces a systematic design and evaluation process that produces successful CAI courseware. It also emphasizes knowledge from educational research that is fundamental to CAI design and evaluation. Details for the collaborative projects will be provided as the semester progresses.
