Computer Animation in Distance Teaching
Television plays an important role in the distance teaching methods of the Open University. The use of computer animation has greatly enhanced the teaching process. Computer images are created using a graphics package based on the SIGGRAPH “Core” system and viewed on a range of colour raster terminals. Previewing animation sequences has been simplified by developing an interactive animation system. Completed sequences are recorded direct to videotape using a system developed jointly by the BBC and the Open University. They are subsequently edited into television programmes for transmission by the BBC.
