Abstract (up to 200 words):
As a component of her Allied Health Sciences course at UNC, Dr. Celia Hooper needed to prepare her students, both residential and distant, to perform a number of tasks using a Computerized Speech Lab. The CSL, and its complement of PC hardware and software components, is used to administer a number of diagnostic tests and therapeutic procedures for speech therapy patients. Developed as lab preparatory components for a number of "hands-on" activities (or labs) that will teach students how to use the CSL, the final products incorporate still images, graphics, text captions, video footage and screen capture clips into a multi-screen aural/visual environment that thoroughly prepares a student for a learning lab engagement with the CSL. The products are accessible as on-line multimedia streams, launched from a home web page, or can be provided to students on CD-ROM. Visual and text material from the products can also be provided in hardcopy form to facilitate on-site recollection of media content and procedures during the actual lab experiences. The project was designed for and created in SMIL as a collaboration between the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Center for Instructional Technology at UNC-CH, using multi media tools such as Premiere, Camtasia, GRiNS, Photoshop, Realtext, Dreamweaver, GoldWave. Replication of this project model for other lab, software-tutorial, or demonstration types of teaching goals is being actively pursued.
