PLATO (Programmed Logic for Automated Teaching Operation)#

Introduction#

PLATO (Programmed Logic for Automatic Teaching Operations) was the first generalized computer-assisted instruction system. Starting in 1960, it ran on the University of Illinois' ILLIAC I computer. By the late 1970s, it supported several thousand graphics terminals distributed worldwide, running on nearly a dozen different networked mainframe computers. Many modern concepts in multi-user computing were originally developed on PLATO, including forums, message boards, online testing, e-mail, chat rooms, picture languages, instant messaging, remote screen sharing, and multiplayer video games.

Einleitung#

PLATO (Programmed Logic for Automated Teaching Operation) war eines der ersten computerunterstützten Lehr- bzw. Lernsysteme.
In den frühen 1960er Jahren wurde das Projekt an der Universität von Illinois gestartet und über Jahrzehnte weiterentwickelt und ausgebaut. Das Ziel bestand darin, Studierende unabhängig voneinander und gleichzeitig mit verschiedenen Lehr- und Lernstoffen zu unterrichten. Im Grunde war PLATO eine Lernplattform, die ihren Nutzern im Laufe der Zeit immer mehr Funktionen zur Verfügung stellte. Zu Beginn verfügte das PLATO-System lediglich über ein Terminal. In den späten 1970er Jahren umfasste PLATO bereits mehrere tausend Grafikterminals, die weltweit verteilt auf fast einem Dutzend verschiedener vernetzter Großrechner liefen. Viele moderne Konzepte des heutigen Multi-User-Computing wurden auf PLATO entwickelt und realisiert, darunter Foren, Message Boards, Onlinetests, E-Mail, Chaträume, Bildsprachen, Instant Messaging, Remote-Screen-Sharing und Multiplayer-Spiele.
