Abstract : This thesis examines computer aided instructional course authoring using the Maestro system. A test course was written using International Rules of the Road as the course content; some comparisons are made with M.1 as a system; recommendations for continued study using Video Disk equipment as a storage medium are made. The low cost and reliability of the microcomputer has created an entire new field in computer aided instruction. Courses that once required an instructor to teach fundamental concepts have begun to be replaced by self-paced courses using a microcomputer as a teaching tool. In situations where the material is basic and an approach of see and then do can be applied, a properly conceived and well written course which uses a microcomputer as the instructor can be very effective. Keywords: Computer aided instructional course authoring; Maestro system; International rules of the road; Theses.
