September 1945 Radio-Craft

September 1945 Radio Craft Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

People old and young enjoy waxing nostalgic about and learning some of the history of early electronics. Radio-Craft was published from 1929 through 1953. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged. See all articles from Radio-Craft.

I have never seen study-at-home audio-visual (AV) physics courses offered by Albert Einstein or AV courses on chemistry promoted by Ernest Rutherford, but I can now say I have seen study-at-home AV courses offered by electronics pioneer Lee de Forest. This full-page advertisement for the de Forest's Training, Inc., company of Chicago, Illinois, appeared in a 1945 edition of Radio-Craft magazine. The vaunted (at least by the company) "Syncro-Graphic" training was an early attempt at the paperless classroom. The student watched films reels of instruction rather than "frequent flipping of pages to refer back or ahead to illustrations mentioned in text." It would be another 50 years before useful computer-based-training (CBT) courses became available for home use, but you have to give the "Father of Radio" credit for being ahead of his time in instruction techniques.
