Two introductory workshops in instructional computing will be offered in May by the Computing and Communications Services Office. This is an opportunity for faculty members, graduate assistants and other instructional support staff members to become familiar with some aspects of instructional computing, to sample some of the available "courseware," and to get a feel for what would be involved in producing instructional software of their own. The classes are all-day, hands-on introductions illustrating two of the most popular instructional writing packages, ToolBook on IBM- compatible computers and HyperCard on the Apple Macintosh. The class emphasizing ToolBook will be offered May 17. Another emphasizing HyperCard will be offered May 19. Major topics covered in each include a perspective on instructional computing (background, analysis, design); elements of navigating and using the example writing package; "test-driving" and evaluating existing instructional materials; and a glimpse of writing and scripting new courseware using the example package. The maximum enrollment in each class is 20, and there is a small fee for each. There are no prerequisites beyond some basic computer literacy. More information and registration forms are available from Ron Szoke at 333-8630 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
