INVESTIGATING TV DISTRIBUTION OF VISUAL AIDS ON THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH CAMPUS VIA LOW-POWER UHF.
ENGAR, KEITH M.; GORDON, OAKLEY J.
OVER A 3-YEAR PERIOD, FROM JULY 1960 TO OCTOBER 1963, TELEVISION SETS WERE PLACED IN UNIVERSITY OF UTAH BUILDINGS WHERE EXPERIMENTAL DEPARTMENTS HAD READY ACCESS TO THE SETS. CONTROL DEPARTMENTS WERE SELECTED IN BUILDINGS WHERE NO TELEVISION RECEIVING SETS WERE CAPABLE OF GETTING STATIONS K71AU OR K74AY. FACULTY IN THE EXPERIMENTAL DEPARTMENTS WERE ENCOURAGED TO PREVIEW FILMS AND OTHER VISUAL MATERIALS, TO RECORD SPECIAL DEMONSTRATIONS ON VIDEOTAPE TO BE PLAYED BACK AS PART OF THEIR REGULAR CLASSROOM PRESENTATION, AND TO USE TELEVISION SETS IN THEIR CLASSROOMS FOR PRESENTING VISUAL MATERIAL IN LIEU OF THE MORE TRADITIONAL METHODS. FOUR HYPOTHESES WERE STATED--(1) THERE WOULD BE AN INCREASE IN THE FREQUENCY OF USE OF VISUAL AIDS BY INSTRUCTORS HAVING TELEVISION AVAILABLE AS A VISUAL AID, (2) USE OF THE LOW-POWER UHF-TV STATION AS A MEDIUM FOR DISTRIBUTING VISUAL AIDS WOULD NOT CREATE MORE PROBLEMS THAN ARE SOLVED BY SUCH USE, (3) TEACHERS AND STUDENTS WOULD HAVE A MORE FAVORABLE ATTITUDE TOWARD TELEVISION AS A VISUAL AID THAN AS A MEDIUM FOR TOTAL INSTRUCTION, AND (4) COLLEGE TEACHERS WOULD HAVE A FAVORABLE ATTITUDE TOWARD INSERVICE TRAINING OFFERED OVER TELEVISION FOR VOLUNTARY USE. ALTHOUGH FOUR HYPOTHESES WERE PRESENTED, NONE WAS TESTED. (LP)
