Interactive videodisc technology in public school settings: an analytic review and delphi study

Lowenstein, Ronnie B. January 1988 (has links)
This study examined the nature and potential of interactive videodisc technology in public schools through an analytic review of the current literature and a modified Delphi study. The analytic review synthesized some of the writings related to classroom applications, technology policy in education, cognition and learning, and dissemination and diffusion of innovation in schools. The Delphi component of the study managed an interaction among 32 national videodisc and education leaders. It consisted of an in-depth interview and two subsequent rounds of questioning of a panel chosen from the fields of education, government, private industry, and the military. The initial interviews asked panelists to respond to four questions: (a) the potential of interactive videodisc technology for education, (b) the measures/policies needed to achieve visitors of potential, (c) the barriers inhibiting die potential, and (d) future scenarios. Analysis of the interview data informed the design of two subsequent research that were limited to visions of potential and measures needed to achieve those visions. The questionnaires, by providing anonymous feedback of group judgment and individual comments, enabled panelists to reassess their original positions and beliefs. A review of the findings revealed nine domains of issues panelists considered important to understanding the relationship of interactive videodisc technology and schooling. 'They are: (1) technological capabilities; (2) legitimate descriptors; (3) potential benefits; (4) goals and rationale for use; (5) production ard design issues; (6) marketing issues; (7) research issues; (8) funding and responsibility issues; and (9) applications in different locations. A systematic search for commonality within those domains disclosed four recurring themes: (1) the complexity and interrelatedness of issues; (2) the importance of the context to technology applications; (3) the between potential and reality; and (4) historical parallels between public school applications of interactive videodiscs and other media technology. The concluding chapter presents a discussion of those themes and their implications, along with recommendations for further research and for ways that the various stakeholders of technology in education might promote thoughtful applications of interactive videodisc technology. / Ed.

An analysis of factors in the adoption or non-adoption of videodisc technology in North American academic and special libraries

Kelley, Robert E. (Robert Emmett) 12 1900 (has links)
The study addressed the problem of the relationships between adoption or non-adoption of a technology in libraries and factors such as budget, personnel, number of clientele served, size of collection, type of library, and concerns about a possible successor technology "waiting in the wings."

An Analysis of Factors in the Adoption or Non-Adoption of Videodisc Technology in North American Academic and Special Libraries

Kelley, Robert E. (Robert Emmett) 12 1900 (has links)
The researcher identified 37 independent variables to study their effect on the two dependent variables, the acquisition of videodiscs and the functions for which videodisc programs were acquired. The literature of the applications of videodisc technology in libraries, museums, education and industry, as well as related issues concerning interactive video, were presented in Chapter 2. Using the diffusion of innovation theory of Everett Rogers as a guide, the researcher constructed a questionnaire. Valid responses totaled 462 from management of all types of academic libraries and from special libraries other than non-academic law, military, veterans' hospital, and church libraries. The following conclusions were made from the results: there were significant correlations between having videodiscs and perceptions of greater benefits than costs, appropriateness of videodisc programs for libraries' objectives or curricula, seeing videodiscs as an enhancement of an existing library technology, collection of videocassettes, and ability to raise funds from slack resources. The size of the libraries' materials and equipment budgets had some significance, but it was not consistently significant, as it was for the above-mentioned factors, at the p < .01 level. Lack of in-house recording ability did not impose a barrier on adoption of discs among respondents. Full--motion, full-screen video was not seen as very important for future multimedia use.

About face, computergraphic synthesis and manipulation of facial imagery

Weil, Peggy January 1982 (has links)
Thesis (M.S.V.S.)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Architecture, 1982. / MICROFICHE COPY AVAILABLE IN ARCHIVES AND ROTCH. VIDEODISC IN ARCHIVES AND ROTCH VISUAL COLLECTIONS. / Includes bibliographical references (leaves 87-90). / A technique of pictorially synthesizing facial imagery using optical videodiscs under computer control is described. Search, selection and averaging processes are performed on a catalogue of whole faces and facial features to yield a composite, expressive, recognizable face. An immediate application of this technique is the reconstruction of a particular face from memory for police identification, thus the project is called , IDENTIDISC. Part I-PACEMAKER describes the production and implementation of the IDENTIDISC system to produce composite faces. Part II-EXPRESSIONMAKER describes animation techniques to add expression and motion to composite faces . Expression sequences are manipulated to make 'anyface' make any face. Historical precedents of making facial composites, theories of facial recognition, classification and expression are also discussed. This thesis is accompanied by two copies of PACEMAKER-III, an optical videodisc produced at the Architecture Machine Group in 1982. The disc can be played on an optical videodisc player . The length is approximately 15 , 0000 frames. Frame numbers are indicated in the text by [ ]. / by Peggy Weil. / M.S.V.S.

The authoring of optical videodiscs with digital data

Yelick, Steven January 1982 (has links)
Thesis (M.S.V.S.)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Architecture, 1982. / MICROFICHE COPY AVAILABLE IN ARCHIVES AND ROTCH. / Includes bibliographical references (leaves 53-55). / The optical videodisc is a publishing medium that permanently stores large amounts of visual and aural data. The technology needed to support videodiscs is understood and available. Digital augmentation of the optical videodisc can exploit this technology for data publishing. Not only can this data be used in raw form, it can also reference the video that it augments. Publishing requires an author to create the publishable material, and this thesis addresses the problem of authoring digitally augmented videodiscs. / by Steven Edward Yelick. / M.S.V.S.
