Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF USING MULTIMEDIA-AUGMENTED SOFWEARE TUTORIALS TO SUPPORT TEACHING THE PRINCIPLES OF EXPERIMENTAL NUCLEAR PHYSICS. THE DETECTOR SYSTEM FOR THE PHOTON TAGGING FACILITY AT THE CONTINUOUS ELECTRON BEAM ACCELERATOR FACILITY (CEBAF) IN NEWPORT NEWS, VIRGINIA IS NOW UNDER CONSTRUCTION AT THE NUCLEAR DETECTOR LABORATORY OF THE CENTER FOR NUCLEAR STUDIES OF THE GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY. THE COMPLETE TAGGING SYSTEM WILL BE USED TO DEMONSTRATE THE PRINCIPLES OF PARTICLE DETECTION USED IN NUCLEAR AND HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS, AND WILL RELATE THESE PRINCIPLES TO A NUMBER OF ILLUSTRATIVE APPLICATIONS ANTICIPATED AT CEBAF. PHASE I WILL FOCUS ON DEFINING THE APPROPRIATE INTERACTIVE MULTIMEDIA-BASED TECHNOLOGIES SUPPORTING STATE-OF-THE-ART EDUCATIONAL DELIVERY SYSTEMS. THE FEASIBILITY OF USING FULL-MOTION AND STILL FRAME DIGITAL VIDEO, DIGITAL AUDIO, ANIMATION, HIGH RESOLUTION GRAPHICS, AND GRAPHICS OVERLAYS WILL BE EXAMINED. ANALYSES WILL ALSO BE CONDUCTED OF DIFFERENT HARDWARE CONFIGURATIONS THAT WOULD BE USED TO SUPPORT THE DELIVERY OF THE MULTIMEDIA-AUGMENTED SOFTWARE TUTORIALS. THE ANALYSIS DELIVERY SYSTEMS WILL CONCENTRATE ON PERSONAL COMPUTERS, CD ROM DEVICES, AND DIGITAL VDEO SOLUTIONS. USING THE INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT MODEL, THE PROJECT WILL DESIGN THE TUTORIAL, AND IMPLEMENT THE MULTIMEDIA INSTRUTIONAL DESIGN ON THE SELECTED HARDWARE FOR A LIMITED SET OF INSTRUCTIONAL OBJECTIVES AS A PROOF OF CONCEPT. THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE MULTIMEDIA-AUGMENTED SOFTWARE TUTORIAL PROOF OF CONCEPT WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED WITH SELECTED MULTIMEDIA AUTHORING SYSTEMS AND TOOLS.
