Michael Arenson is Professor of Music Theory at the University of Delaware.He began his first work with computer-based instruction while working on his M.M. at Florida State University in 1965.Using the Coursewriter CBI system on an IBM 1500 mainframe computer to try out the frames and branching for a programmed text based on Hindemith's Craft of Musical Composition, he learned how much fun it can be to watch fanfold paper work its way off of the platen of a teletypewriter terminal.As a Ph.D. student at The Ohio State University (1969-1976) he developed a CBI program which he tested on freshmen music theory students using an IBM 370 mainframe computer.His students also learned how much fun it can be to watch fanfold paper work its way off of the platen of a teletypewriter terminal.He graduated from the teletypewriter terminal to the beautiful ORANGE screen when he started working with the PLATOR System while teaching at Iowa State University (1973-1977).He continued his work in "orange" while developing the GUIDOR Music Theory drill-and-practice package at the University of Delaware (1977-present).He later learned about other colors (after all, he is a university professor) and went on to develop other software packages with a little more sophistication.In 1975, while at Iowa State, Professor Arenson joined Fred Hofstetter and eight other technology pioneers in Newark, Delaware, to create the National Consortium for Computer-Based Music Instruction (NCCBMI).

Professor Arenson served as Pre-session Chair for ADCIS in 1980 and 1981 and served as President of NCCBMI in 1984 and 1985.In 1984, at the ADCIS Conference in Columbus, Ohio, he received a Presidential Citation from Dr. Ron Comer "in acknowledgement of many years in support to ADCIS."Although his interests have shifted to other organizations through the years (e.g., CMS and IAJE), Professor Arenson continues to support the exemplary work of his colleagues in ATMI.
