Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF A VIDEO IMAGE STORAGE SYSTEM THAT CAN BE USED BY TEACHERS OF THE HANDICAPPED FOR INTEGRATING INTERACTIVE VIDEO COMPONENTS INTO LOCALLY-PRODUCED CBI INSTRUCTION. THIS VIDEO PRO- DUCTION SYSTEM WOULD BE BASED UPON ONE OF THE MANY NEW OPTICAL IMAGE STORAGE MEDIA THAT HAVE RECENTLY BEEN, OR SOON WILL BE, MADE AVAILABLE. AMONG THESE ARE WORM (WRITE ONCE, READ MANY), WMRM (WRITE MANY, READ MANY) AND LASER- FILM. SUCH A SYSTEM SHOULD BE BOTH AFFORDABLE TO THE SCHOOLS, AND SIMPLE ENOUGH TO OPERATE TO BE ACCEPTABLE TO THE CBI AUTHOR/TEACHER. THE PROJECT INVOLVES CHECKING THE SUITABILITY OF EACH OF THE NEWER MEDIA IN-HOUSE PRODUCTION OF VIDEO DISCS OR OTHER STORAGE DEVICES, AND THE COMPATI- BILITY OF THESE MEDIA WITH THE AUTHORING AND DELIVERY SYSTEMS COMMONLY AVAILABLE INT HE SCHOOLS. IT ALSO INVOLVESDETERMINING THE FEASIBILITY OF INCORPORATING AN EXPERT KNOWLEDGE SYSTEM INTO THE PROPOSED WORKSTATION, SO THAT THE COMPLEXITY OF THE VIDEO PROGRAMMING AND INTEGRATION TASKS FACING THE TEACHER/AUTHOR CAN BE FURTHER SIMPLIFIED. FINALLY, THE TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS OF WORKSTATIONS FOR IMPLEMENTING THOSE MEDIA PRODUCTION SYSTEMS FOUND SUITABLE WILL BE DEFINED, AND THE FEASIBILITY OF PROTOTYPING SUCH WORKSTATIONS WILL BE DETERMINED.
