University-Two Year College Cooperation Through Direct Communication Linkages.
Maxwell, L. M.; And Others
Colorado State University launched an experimental program, CO-TIE (Cooperation via Televised Instruction in Education), with one other 4-year college and five 2-year colleges in the state. The program was designed to ease the transition of junior college transfer students in engineering and other professional disciplines to a 4-year college. It was hoped to alleviate the lack of realistic agreements on common core curricula and transfer credit arrangements between 2- and 4-year colleges. The program employs modern automated educational techniques such as videotapes, electronic blackboard-by-wire, and other low-data-rate transmission devices for courses in mathematics, computer science, and vocational education. The mechanics of the instructional process is discussed. (Author/CA)
