Programmed and Computer-Assisted Instruction

by C. Victor Bunderson & Gerald W. Faust - 1976

In this chapter programmed instruction (PI) and computerassisted instruction (CAI), viewed in their primary roles as methods of teaching one person at a time, are defined and reviewed. Neither PI nor CAI is seen to be a subset of the other, for the first is defined as a systematic development process rather than a product form, and the second is still too complex to be characterized as a kind of instructional medium. A synthesis is possible, however, around the idea of a "design science of instruction."
