Abstract : In order to examine the possibilities for an advanced multimedia instructional system, the study begins with a comprehensive review and assessment of current instructional media in terms of a functional description, instructional flexibility, support requirements, and costs. Following this, a model of an individual instructional system is developed as a basis for further analysis. Final comparisons and trade-offs among the media are then made to arrive at a recommended media configuration which could serve as a multimedia base for an individualized instructional system. At this point, requirements and features of an automated management information and control subsystem to provide necessary operational control of the total instructional system are outlined and discussed. The main features of a generalized plan for the development of such a system are then described. (Author)
