Skinner on his Teaching Machine and programmed learning

FromĀ Teaching in a Digital Age by A. W. Bates I came across this 1954 video of Skinner explaining his Teaching Machine inspired by behaviourism. The machine runs a paper script, but it isn’t that different from the computer based drill training today. You get a question, you write your answer, and you get feedback.

Later we got machines that projected slides and hypertext systems. See Programmed Instruction and Teaching Machines.
