Computer-based Learning and Design - An Educational Approach
The Virtual Studio [Proceedings of the 12th European Conference on Education in Computer Aided Architectural Design / ISBN 0-9523687-0-6] Glasgow (Scotland) 7-10 September 1994, p. 221
Current developments of computer based learning systems often approach the problem from a technological point of view of what hardware and software is available and how it can be used. The paper attempts to take the opposite approach and explore the requirements of architectural education and what the attributes of computer based learning should be to support it. Just as the meaning of a word depends on its context within a sentence so the value of a CBL system is dependent on the learning or design context in which it is used and the purpose of a student using the system.
