The PLATO IV System (PLATO) is probably the largest, most heavily funded CA I experiment in the world . The original NSF grant of five million dollars and th e matching five million dollars from the State of Illinois have, since 1959, resulte d in a veritable river of software and about one half dozen hardware sites capable o f supporting that software .(More)

Some related letters arising out of commentary on a previous paper by Geller appear also in this issue, in the Technical Correspondence section. It has been brought to the(More)
Large introductory courses in computer science make test construction and administration a particularly difficult problem for the instructor. Multiple-choice computer-graded tests can be used to alleviate this problem by testing not only in the knowledge areas of history, hardware, software and applications but in the area of programming skills as well.(More)
The teacher of an introductory Artificial Intelligence course has the twin problem s of choosing an AI language with sufficient richness and power that can be learned quickl y and of finding an easily accessible machine on which the students run their programs . Although LISP is certainly the AI language of choice, it is not available at al l institutions(More)
Too often the department of Computer Science's service course is limited to either the major course itself or some course about computer science. While the former is usually much too demanding for nonmajors, the latter never fully allows the student to design, debug and actually run the solution to a complex problem on a computer. We propose a course which(More)
While I wanted to continue to address these very important issues, I also wanted to modify the pedagogy of the course to include a heavier writing component. I believe that writing is an especially effective way to develop critical thinking and reasoning skills. Writing allows students to examine and organize their thinking; in short, writing clarifies(More)
We suggest that APL be used to teach selected topics in computer science. As a case in point, we take the topic: “An Introduction to Search Procedures for Problem-Solving” This is the first topic in a series of experimental curriculum units currently being developed at the University of Massachusetts. In this paper, recursive APL functions(More)
