Abstract : An analysis is made of various forms and methods of programmed learning. The primary developments in the introduction of programmed learning methods are: creation of programmed teaching aids; use of existing textbooks for programmed learning; conducting programmed lectures with feedback; and use of both teaching machines and machineless methods of checking knowledge. These directions are described in some detail and compared. It is noted that the potential of programmed learning for saving the students' time is often not realized, due to the fact that the students are not accustomed to the increased amounts of independent work which programmed learning requires. Some examples of programmed methods used in the author's school are presented. Subjects taught are primarily technical.
