Programmed Learning often called Programmed Instruction paved the way for learner-centred and self-paced learning. It is also an attempt to make the teacher a more effective mediator between learning and learner, particularly because it is based on the system of small steps and immediate confirmation of answers chosen by the student. The Principles of Programmed Learning ultimately contributed to the development of Computer Assisted Learning. This book provides in-depth knowledge of programming methods and will be useful to educators, programmers, educational administrators and students.
