Correspondence Tuition in France and the Development of Permanent Education.
This report covers the current situation and general trends in correspondence study in France and describes two public institutions involved in it: Centre National de Tele-Enseignement and Radio-Television Scolaire. The evolution of correspondence study has been linked with the development of permanent education and the parallel transformation of correspondence study is calling increasingly upon audiovisual aids and teaching machines. Individual home study is now combining with various types of localized group instruction, in particular, using television assisted teaching. The Centre National de Tele-Enseignement provides instruction by the traditional medium of correspondence courses but supplements this with more up-to-date techniques. Radio-Television Scolaire, originally implemented for elementary and secondary education, is now enlarging its scope to include courses for adult home study, either with, or without, supporting study materials. (Appendixes include the experience of the Centre Universitaire de Cooperation Economique et Sociale and general documentation on the Centre National de Tele-Enseignement.) (NL)
