Date: Mon, 8 Aug 1994 17:05:31 -0400 (EDT)
Subject: Workshop on Interactive Video in Political Science

1994 APSA Annual Meeting Short Course

Wednesday, August 31
9:30 am to 4:00 pm
New York Hilton

The convergence of video and computer technology has led to
the development of interactive video. Interactive video uses
either a personal computer or a Macintosh to control a laser
videodisc so that one has random access to the various video clips
and stills on the disc. This multimedia technology allows the
computer to be useful in teaching value-oriented, as well as
behavioral, courses.
This full-day workshop on interactive video will be led by
Marc Triebwasser of Central Connecticut State University. It will
include: a general introduction to interactive videodiscs for the
beginner; how interactive video can be used in teaching; a survey
of available interactive videodiscs and other video materials in
political science; how you can create your own interactive
videodiscs on campus; the prospects for digital video and
recordable CD-ROMs (CD-R), especially MPEG video; and sources for
video clips on disk and on video tapes.
Lab sessions will be conducted so that participants can gain
hands-on experience. No prior knowledge of computers or video
technology is required.

Because of the equipment needs for the hands-on portion of the
workshop, it is important to register as soon as you can. No same
day registration will be possible.
