This CBI technology was more advanced from the one that was used initially being used in the military and was comprised of video disc players that had been joined together with computers. One decade later, the video discs were replaced by the CD-ROM that led to the introduction of a CBI technology that enabled the production of high-quality video and audio segments that were highly compelling.
CBI has proven to be an effective method of learning and teaching even during those old times when the technology was very basic and using videodiscs. There have been various studies that have been conducted primarily to ascertain the effectiveness of this training techniques. Fletcher (1990) and Kulik (1994) research studies are termed to be among the most renowned studies on this topic since they carried out in different settings like military training and education centers. According to most of these studies, computer based instruction has been proven to be more effective and less costly compared to the conventional training techniques. Similar findings were confirmed by a study that was conducted by Kulik (1998) that involved analyzing 97 studies that were comparing different classes whereby some were using CBI with others applying the traditional techniques of teaching
However, the first reported use of the Computer Based Instruction was made in 9157with the first successful use of computer-based instruction and in particular multimedia delivery device being introduced in the early 1980s (Shlechter, 1991). ...Show more
