Report of the Minnesota Inter-Institutional Television Feasibility Study.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Inter-Institutional Television.
In 1965, the Minnesota legislature called for a feasibility study of inter-institutional educational television in higher education. Recommendations resulting from the study, with approval of the Statewide Advisory Committee, were: (1) empower the Liaison and Facilities Commission to manage the project and its funds; (2) provide each 4-year institution with a Wide Area Telephone Service (WATS) line and let each junior college share a WATS line with one other institution; (3) establish nine regional production centers; (4) establish two model interconnections; (5) provide funds for programing such material for both broadcast and CCTV; (6) maintain on-going evaluation of the program; (7) develop material in accordance with the policies of the participating institutions; (8) compensate faculty according to current salary and rank practices; (9) develop courses to prepare teachers in the use and preparation of TV instructional materials; (10) encourage private colleges to take part in the program; (11) support the Minnesota Educational TV Network in the development of a statewide capability; (12) develop a coordinated Minnesota library and data network; (13) establish specifications for compatibility of facilities and equipment; (14) encourage the Liaison and Facilities Commission to use the inter-institutional television development as a basis for further instructional cooperation. A table summarizes the expected costs of implementing these recommendations. (HH)
