Academic Productivity: The Case for Instructional Software

Monday, January 1, 1996


The National Learning Infrastructure Initiative believes that high-quality instructional software will increase productivity in higher education environments, and that a commercial market for creating interactive learning materials is needed. This paper synthesizes the most pertinent issues discussed on this subject during a July 1996 Educom Roundtable of 20 representatives from universities, publishing houses, hardware and software companies, and the federal government. The roundtable discussed the issues involved with creating a demand for this software market and then successfully supplying it. This report from the Broadmoor Roundtable, Colorado Springs, Colorado, July 24-25, 1996 was originally published by Educom.
