TEMP, TEXAS EDUCATIONAL MICROWAVE PROJECT. FINAL REPORT.
SCHENKKAN, R.F.; AND OTHERS
A PILOT EFFORT TO LINK 11 INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER LEARNING BY MICROWAVE TRANSMITTERS FOR INSTRUCTIONAL PURPOSES WAS DEMONSTRATED. THIS MICROWAVE LINKAGE PROVIDED A SINGLE CLOSED-CIRCUIT TELEVISION SYSTEM THROUGHOUT THE PARTICIPATING INSTITUTIONS. THROUGH THE FORMATION OF THE "ELECTRONIC CAMPUS," THE FACULTY RESOURCES OF ALL 11 SCHOOLS COULD BE SHARED. THIS FACULTY-SHARING CONCEPT BECAME THE BASIS UPON WHICH THE PROJECT WAS DEVELOPED. FACILITIES AND TELEVISED CURRICULUMS WERE PLANNED AND DEVELOPED, AND DURING APPROXIMATELY A 4-YEAR PERIOD, 11,725 STUDENTS RECEIVED INSTRUCTION FOR CREDIT VIA THE SYSTEM. THE OVERALL PROGRAM WAS RATED AS SUCCESSFUL. RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE FOR SIMILAR DEVELOPMENTS THROUGHOUT THE NATION. OTHER REPORTS IN THIS SERIES ARE ED 003 735 THROUGH ED 003 737. (JH)
