MIT Project Athena: A Computer-Aided Teaching System (1984)

Project Athena was a pioneering experiment in education developed at MIT in the 1980s to integrate computers into the university system and provide access to powerful software to the community at all levels. This 1984 promotional video shows how the campus-wide network of over 2500 computer workstations is designed to enhance intuitive understanding and perspective on engineering problems, such as visualizing the relationships between theory and experiment. Featured speakers include professors Bill Unkel, Jeffrey Steinfeld, Terry Ring, Julian Szekel, and Roger Mark. [T27677]
