DETERMINANTS OF ADULT ENROLLMENT IN TELEVISED COLLEGE-CREDIT COURSES, PART II--MOTIVATION, RESISTANCE, AND CONCLUSIONS.
HOBAN, CHARLES F.
THIS IS PART TWO OF A TWO-PART STUDY OF MOTIVATION, SOCIAL CHARACTERISTICS, AND REACTIVE BEHAVIOR OF ADULTS ENROLLED IN OPEN-CIRCUIT TELEVISED COURSES OFFERED FOR COLLEGE CREDIT BY THE COLLEGE OF GENERAL STUDIES OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA (PART ONE WAS ED 003 187). PART TWO OF THE STUDY WAS CONCERNED WITH MOTIVATION AND RESISTANCE TO TELEVISED INSTRUCTION. DATA CONSISTED OF RESPONSES TO OPEN-ENDED ITEMS IN THE QUESTIONNAIRES RETURNED BY ABOUT 160 ENROLLEES IN TELEVISED COURSES AND APPROXIMATELY 150 ENROLLEES IN ON-CAMPUS COURSES. CONCLUSIONS OF BOTH PART ONE AND PART TWO ARE COMBINED IN THIS REPORT. OBSERVATIONS HAVE PROVIDED EVIDENCE THAT TELEVISION IS ACCEPTED AS A MEDIUM OF INSTRUCTION UNDER CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH--(1) IMPEDE PARTICIPATION IN COURSES OFFERED ON THE CAMPUS, (2) INTENSIFY THE NEED FOR A LIMITED NUMBER OF COLLEGE CREDITS TO ACHIEVE A SALIENT GOAL, OR (3) BOTH. HENCE, TELEVISED INSTRUCTION FOR CREDIT IS AN ATTRACTION FOR THOSE WITH RESTRICTIONS UPON CAMPUS ATTENDANCE. (WB)
