Abstract : The report describes an experimental course in the operation and troubleshooting of a communications transceiver, the AN/URC-32, in which the transceiver is used as part of an instructional station in a CAI system. The transceiver and the CAI system are hard-wired together to form a single training system. The system is presently operating in the Computer-Based Education Research Laboratory of the University of Illinois. A student's operation of switches on the transceiver front panel is sensed by the CAI system. The CAI system can insert and remove malfunctions in the transceiver under program control. This allows practice in operating and troubleshooting the equipment to be coordinated with the presentation of technical information in the lessons. The student is required to put his knowledge of this information to immediate use in solving troubleshooting problems. The report describes the initial implementation of the above features. (Author)
