Computer-assisted instruction was first used in education and training during the 1950s. Early work was done by IBM and such people as Gordon Pask, and . Moore, but CAI grew rapidly in the 1960s when federal funding for research and development in education and industrial laboratories was implemented. The . government wanted to determine the possible effectiveness of computer-assisted instruction, so they developed two competing companies, (Control Data Corporation and Mitre Corporation) who came up with the PLATO and TICCIT projects. Despite money and research, by the mid seventies it was apparent that CAI was not going to be the success that people had believed. Some of the reasons are:
I think I better understand your question now. This situation is a bit tricky, but we can break it down. First, for a full US bachelor’s degree, it would be pretty difficult to complete it in less than 4 years, unless the university accepts some of your foreign coursework as an equivalent. In general, American universities require 120 credit hours to graduate, and most students take 15 credit hours a semester, meaning it would take exactly four years to finish. If you have or are able to take Advanced Placement exams, you may be able to receive credit and cut down that 120 down, but even with AP credit and summer classes, a more realistic graduation time frame in that case would be 3 years; 2 is unheard of.
In 1985, President Reagan entered Bethesda Naval Hospital for colon cancer surgery. While the President was recovering in the hospital, McFarlane met with him and told him that representatives from Israel had contacted the National Security Agency to pass on confidential information from what Reagan later described as the "moderate" Iranian faction headed by Rafsanjani opposed to the Ayatollah's hardline anti-American policies.  According to Reagan, these Iranians sought to establish a quiet relationship with the United States, before establishing formal relationships upon the death of the aging Ayatollah.  In Reagan's account, McFarlane told Reagan that the Iranians, to demonstrate their seriousness, offered to persuade the Hezbollah militants to release the seven . hostages.  McFarlane met with the Israeli intermediaries;  Reagan claimed that he allowed this because he believed that establishing relations with a strategically located country, and preventing the Soviet Union from doing the same, was a beneficial move.  Although Reagan claims that the arms sales were to a "moderate" faction of Iranians, the Walsh Iran/Contra Report states that the arms sales were "to Iran" itself,  which was under the control of the Ayatollah.
