Known learning principles cannot be efficiently applied in the traditional classroom environment. To achieve efficient learning it is necessary to remold the teaching-learning configuration to one in which the state of the art can be applied. Teaching machines provide such a configuration, and have proved to be dramatically effective in teaching a wide variety of subject matters. There is a need for more sophisticated machines with which to research possibilities of automating instruction in the maintenance of complex electronic systems. Engineers can contribute to teaching machine technology through programming of technical content, through design of appropriate hardware, and through support of teaching-automation research.
