Undertaken on a national scale in Poland, this 1966 pilot project provided lectures by television for those who, because of employment or location, could not attend intramural courses in higher technical education. The television lectures embraced subjects from the first two years of extramural technical studies together with aspects of general interest. Questionnaire surveys conducted during the preparatory pilot course centered on personal and socioeconomic characteristics of participants, reasons for pursuing external degree courses, student problems, students' opinions on the instructional value of the lectures, and the influence of the lectures on success in the entrance examination. A followup poll was taken six months after completion of the course. Benefits of the course were tentatively assessed, along with limitations of the study. (The document includes 44 tables.) (ly)
