The Open University Is for You.
Taylor, John A.
Implementation of Open University courses from Great Britain into the Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville system is described. The following aspects of the program in general and of implementation are discussed: the method by which Open University courses offer education to students; the problem of selecting among Open University courses the specific courses for pilot implementation at an American university; and means by which Open University courses may be made to interlock with each other and also with conventional programs. Two important technical matters are the sum of initial seed money required for beginning Open University work and the way in which Open University courses might be guided through the process of approval for academic credit at an existing American university. An office will have to be established for Open University purposes, and students will have to be selected, recruited, admitted, and processed. An additional requirement is staffing the program. (SW)
