International Journal of Instructional Media
Int J Instr Media
The International Journal of Instructional Media (IJIM) is the source of cutting edge research and commentary on all forms of instructional media used in instruction and training today. IJIM bridges the gap between theory and practice. The present growth in educational technology confronts you, the instructor, with a vast array of instructional media without clearly defined guidelines as to their optimal use. To help bridge the gap, IJIM focuses on quality research and presents articles about ongoing programs in instructional media and education. IJIM investigates and explains: Computer technology; Computer mediated communications including the Internet; Distance education including the Internet, ITV, video and audio conferencing; Instructional media and technology; Telecommunications; Interactive video, videodisc, and software applications; Instructional media management; Instructional development and systems; Media research and evaluation; Media research and communications. Primarily, IJIM is concerned with the problem of applying the various distant learning strategies and instructional media to the learning process. Articles discuss specific applications and techniques for bringing the advantages of a particular instructional medium to bear on a complete curriculum system or program. Most importantly, IJIM is not hardware oriented - it is instruction and systems oriented. It is concerned with hardware only to the extent that hardware forms part of an educational system called "instructional media," involving student, hardware, software, curriculum and instructor.
