At Drexel University in 1967, the Self-Controlled Interactive Learning System (SCILS) Program was started to implement a unique approach developed for teaching basic reading and other academic skills. The SCILS Program revolves around a learner, a monitor, courseware, and equipment. The monitor supervises the SCILS experience, observes the learner while he or she is working with the equipment, and plans the appropriate sequence of learning activities based on the learner’s specific requirements.
