Interactive videodiscs have been used as effective educational tools in business, the military, and by some disciplines and professional programs in higher education. The effectiveness and potential of videodisc application stem from the combination of high quality video and audio with computer text and graphics into integrated learning programs. While the potential for social work education has been recognized, the literature is void of practical information on using this new learning technology in social work courses. The current article describes the development of videodisc applications at the University of Minnesota Deluth over the past five years and explains the current and potential use of these applications in specific social work curriculum areas.
