Tutored Video Instruction with Classroom
Interaction
  • Joint project between University of Washington,
    Beihang University, and Microsoft Research Asia
  • Offer an undergraduate algorithms course using
    Tutored Video Instruction
  • Instructor is in Seattle
  • Time difference prevented a synchronous distance
    course

26
Tutored Video Instruction
  • Base course on facilitated use of recorded
    materials
  • Materials recorded from a live class
  • Facilitator guides discussion around materials
  • Gibbons, Science 1977
