Kellerâ s Personalized System of Instruction (PSI) uses small units of instruction, self-pacing, mastery learning, lectures for motivation, and proctors for immediate feedback. While highly successful in the early 1970â s, PSI fell out of favor for a variety of reasons. This developmental dissertation resurrects Kellerâ s system in its purest form and uses PSI for an online Masterâ s program. Using Cold Fusionâ ¢ and Dreamweaverâ ¢ an online Keller experience was created. Experts of PSI reviewed the product to check for fidelity to Kellerâ s ideas. Formative and summative evaluation showed that this system of instruction is viable for the online environment. Recommendations and implications for future use are discussed.
