Abstract : Overcrowded conditions, unavoidable absence, and course priority in aero laboratories led to a quest for an instructional method which would alleviate these problems without increasing the instructional workload. The tape-slide lecture apparatus was selected as the vehicle for conveying the necessary information. Detailed scripts were written, slides were prepared and fully automatic and synchronized audio-visual packages were assembled. The results are four individual packages: The Low-Speed Wind Tunnel--Introduction, The Aerolab Low-Speed Wind Tunnel--Description, The Aerolab Low-Speed Wind Tunnel--Operation, and Technical Report Writing. Reaction to the results was favorable. It was concluded that the method was effective and recommended that work in this field continue. (Author)
