REPORT TO THE CENTRAL MICHIGAN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES COUNCIL ON THE FEASIBILITY OF AN INTERCONNECTED TELECOMMUNICATION SYSTEM FOR THE 39 COUNTY REGION OF MICHIGAN.
Central Michigan Educational Resources Council, Mount Pleasant.
THIS REPORT EXAMINES THE FEASIBILITY OF ELECTRONICALLY CONNECTING NORTHERN AND CENTRAL MICHIGAN AREA SCHOOLS FOR DATA PROCESSING AND FOR INSTRUCTIONAL, ADMINISTRATIVE, INFORMATION, AND AUDIO SERVICES. DATA GATHERED THROUGH QUESTIONNAIRES, DISCUSSIONS, WORKSHOPS, AND VISITATIONS DEMONSTRATE THE GENERAL DESIRE FOR PARTICIPATION IN AN INSTRUCTIONAL TV SYSTEM WITH A WIDE RANGE OF CLASSROOM COUSES. THE SYSTEM WOULD BE SUPPORTED BY FEDERAL, STATE , AND LOCAL FUNDS. WORKSHOP PROPOSALS FOR TYPES OF ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT NEEDED AND THEIR COSTS ARE DISCUSSED. PROJECTIONS ARE MADE FOR THE NUMBER OF BROADCAST STATIONS NEEDED (SEVEN, ULTIMATELY), FOR THE AUDIO AND AURAL BROADCAST AND COMMUNICATION SERVICES REQUIRED, AND FOR THE CONTRACTING AND SHARED USE OF COMPUTER SERVICES. APPENDICES INCLUDE QUESTIONNAIRE RESULTS, DESCRIPTIONS OF PRESENT EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES COUNCIL PROGRAMS AND OF THE SCHOOL ELECTRONICS PLANNING EXERCISE (SEPEX), AND DISCUSSION OF THE FOLLOWING IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROPOSED SYSTEM--EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS, OPEN-CIRCUIT TELEVISION SERVICE, COLOR TELEVISION, AND TYPICAL COSTS.
