  • Patent number: 4170832
    Abstract: An audiovisual teaching machine utilizes video recorded instruction material and a student console including a television or motion picture monitor. A switch on the monitor allows the student to begin an instruction segment in which motion video information is produced on the video monitor depicting a sequence of events leading to a choice of alternative actions and followed by an indication of the possible alternatives. The apparatus automatically stops the video presentation after the display of alternatives and displays the likely consequences of any one of the alternatives selected by manipulation of front panel switches by the student. The likely outcome of the student's selection is depicted in motion video form to allow the student to experience the consequence of his decision.
