Until now, the computer has played only a minor role in the teaching of physics and other subjects. In the next few years we can expect this to change dramatically because of the development and profusion of relatively inexpensive personal computers and because of the growing pressure to streamline the educational system. In the future, computer‐based instruction may make practical the organization of colleges in which almost all funds are used for the development of curriculum material and relatively little is spent per student for delivery.
