Abstract

From 1978 through 1980, the Media Development Project for the Hearing Impaired (MDPHI) at the University of Nebraska worked under a mandate from the Office of Special Education to discover how the new laser videodisc technology could best be used in the education of the hearing impaired. The Project decided to develop a more highly interactive program to explore the feasibility and practicality of interfacing the videodisc player with an external microcomputer. In this way the realistic, high quality visuals of the videodisc could join with the memory and branching capabilities of the computer to provide the hearing impaired with an interactive and individualized visual communication medium.
