AGAP ANALYSIS OF WEB TOOLS in Engineering was undertaken as one part of the Digital Library Network for Engineering and Technology (DLNET) grant funded by NSF (DUE-0085849). DLNET represents a Web portal and an online review process to archive quality knowledge objects in Engineering and Technology disciplines. The gap analysis coincided with the d...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of supplemental subliminal captions and field dependence on the recall of cognitive information. Groups of subjects (N = 199) viewed one of four television presentations: subliminal captions only, conventional (visible) captions only, subliminal and visible combined for reinforcement, and sub...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The two greatest disincentives to offering engineering courses in "distance" mode are the additional effort required for faculty to prepare and deliver the materials and the concurrent loss of the immediate feedback the instructor receives in a typical classroom environment. An "online" offering of a course typically increases the faculty effort by...

In 1993, Virginia Tech implemented a university-wide Instructional Development Initiative to improve teaching through effective use of instructional technology. Components included a Faculty Development Institute, course-development resources and support, student access to computing resources, and classroom facilities. This article highlights ratio...
Article
The purpose of this study was to develop a system for characterizing food purchases by families using supermarket receipt data. One hundred and five shoppers contributed data that represented 363 people (138 children and 225 adults). Participants provided food purchase receipt data for at least 6 weeks, which included an average of at least 20 food...
Article
The Nutrition for a Lifetime System(NLS) is a multimedia, public-access system housed in a kiosk in supermarkets designed to help shoppers decrease fat and increase fiber and fruits and vegetables in their food purchases in order to meet nutritional guidelines. In the present study, the NLS was modified from previous versions so that users' time wa...
Article
A randomized-control test of a multimedia nutrition intervention-the Nutrition for a Lifetime System (NLS©)- utilized supermarket receipts to examine effects of NLS treatment on the daily per person nutritional content of participants' supermarket purchases. In regression analyses controlling for background variables, baseline purchases and trends...
Article
Family-based communication about sexual behavior and sexuality is a predominate theme in the key risk reduction and service objectives for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention and related issues in Healthy People 2000. These recommendations are particularly poignant for younger adolescents who are not yet sexually active and whose social o...
Article
We describe the first study with a home-based HIV prevention video program for parents and young teenagers. The objectives of the program are to inform parents and teenagers about the causes and prevention of HIV infection and other sexually transmitted diseases, to increase family problem-solving skills, and to increase teen problem-solving and as...
Article
Evaluated a home-based HIV prevention video program with 45 families with at least 1 12–14 yr old. The objectives of the program are to inform parents and teenagers about the causes and prevention of HIV infection and other sexually transmitted diseases, to increase family problem-solving skills, and to increase teen problem-solving and assertivene...
Article

Located the Nutrition for a Lifetime System (NLS-1), a prototype interactive information system, in a large supermarket to help users decrease high-fat food purchases and increase high-fiber food purchases. Study participants were randomly assigned to control (n = 23; used the NLS-1 to enter food purchases only) or experimental (n = 26; viewed vide...
Article

A broader definition of social validity is proposed wherein a socially valid behavior-change intervention is directed to a problem of verifiable importance, the intervention is valued and used appropriately by designated target groups, and the intervention as used has sufficient behavioral impact to substantially reduce the probability of the probl...

This study reports the results of one effort to help supermarket shoppers alter food purchases to make purchases (and meals) that are lower in fat and higher in fiber. A prototype interactive information system using instructional video programs, feedback on purchases with specific goals for change, weekly programs, and the ability to track user in...
Article
Performed an initial evaluation of the Nutrition for a Lifetime System© (NLS-1), an interactive information system designed to help users decrease high-fat food purchases and increase high-fiber food purchases. Study participants in a large supermarket were randomly assigned to control ( n = 23; used the NLS-1 to enter intended food purchases only)...
Article
This paper describes the design and production of two university-level laboratory training lessons which use a computer-based interactive videocassette system (CBIV). The hardware system is an Apple II microcomputer, Sony Betamax videocassette player, and BCD Associates interface. The paper describes each lesson's design features. Several unique co...
