Computer Aided Instruction

The age that we are in apparently speaks for its own.
Through the years, humans have developed an instinct of seeking for technology that shall make more efficient and effective use of time. We have so far developed a highly competitive and rapidly changing world which demands for innovations which tend to be superior from all the rest. At this rate, education, which is the underlying stuff of technology, must keep up with the pace and the demands of the industry.
Most academicians would cling to the concept that learning only takes place inside the classroom and the laboratory and that there should always be interaction between a mentor and a student to fully assess the capacity and the comprehension of the learner. However, due to the advent of the Computer- Aided Instruction (CAI) or which is also known as Computer Assisted Instruction, technology made available education within the reach of the learner’s fingertips. It is a diverse and a rapidly expanding spectrum of computer technologies that assist the teaching and learning process. CAI is also known as computer-assisted instruction. Examples of CAI applications include guided drill and practice exercises, computer visualization of complex objects, and computer-facilitated communication between students and teachers. It aims to reinforce academic instruction through simulations where students get to experience learning in a different light.
CAI can dramatically increase a student's access to information since not everything may be provided by a mentor. In light of this problem, it will serve as a supplement to the prepared lectures. For instance, in a Microbiology class, the samples of bacteria, parasites and other cultures may be presented in high resolution through CAI which may spare the students time poring over microscopes for the sake of mastery of the said subject. This way, they may move on smoothly from topic to topic without interferences and delays. Furthermore, CAI can create...
