Developed at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Video-based Supplemental Instruction is an interactive information processing and delivery system that helps academically at-risk students master rigorous course content as they concurrently develop and refine reasoning and learning skills. Rather than requiring prerequisite enrollment in a traditional developmental course, VSI is a learning system that mainstreams the best practices of developmental education into historically-difficult core curriculum courses such as Western Civilization I, College Algebra, or General Chemistry. The VSI program has been replicated at other institutions in the U.S. and abroad at the secondary and postsecondary level.
