Abstract

Today, as in the past, there are various factors affecting education and calling for changes. Firstly, there is a constant influx of technology and materials into educational and training systems. Secondly, the characteristics and needs of learners are changing. Finally, the problems affecting both learners and educators are increasing. Rather than passively accepting change, Ways (1964) has suggested that humans become active participants. For educators, this means altering instructional strategies to incorporate new mediums (Romizowsky, 1988). Educators need to have a voice and exercise control over the way in which messages are presented. In order to do so, educators need "supplementary training in the processes by which media are developed, improved and evaluated in order to arrive at sound evaluations of their relevance for...educational objectives..." (Briggs, Campeau, Gagne', and May, 1967)
