Abstract:A computer-based interactive videodisc (CBIV) was created by the researcher from pre-existing video media and used by students to assess the practicality of developing and using CBIV programs in instrumental music. The CBIV provided instruction in oboe reedmaking.
The development model of the CBIV included the following goals: (1) Review the literature, (2) Needs Assessment, (3) Task analysis, (4) Evaluation design, (5) System and courseware design, (6) System and courseware development, (7) Pilot test, and (8) Final written report.
Feasibility of creating and using a CBIV in instrumental music education was shown through two levels of evaluation--documentation and formative evaluation. Documentation included (1) a project log of the type, cost, and rationale for all resources consumed by the project, (2) student record keeping, and (3) personal observations. Formative evaluation included (1) expert review, (2) user reaction to the pilot test, and (3) expert observation of the pilot test.
Seven students worked with the CBIV in groups of two or three on five different occasions over a period of two weeks. Five of the students had never made an oboe reed. Two major conclusions were reached--(1) developmental costs of the CBIV were reasonable for this project, and (2) the CBIV made from pre-existing video media worked well. Services and materials (including hardware) cost $4,006. Developmental time consumed 212 hours. Using the CBIV program as the sole source of instruction, five students who had never made an oboe reed produced reeds which were judged similar in appearance and sound to reeds made by beginners with teacher guidance.
Based on the conclusions of this project, several recommendations for further study were made. (1) Further development of CBIV programs in instrumental music should include systematic evaluation processes. (2) A formal summative evaluation of this project should be conducted using an experimental design in order to assess cost effectiveness. (3) Efforts should be made to implement technology-based programs which have had proven success in music education.
