Appropriate Media and Methods for Distance Education in Norway.
This study is aimed primarily at the administration of a newly established institute for distance education in Norway, Norsk fjernundervisning (NFU). Purposes of the project, in order of priority, were to provide (1) a working document for the administration of NFU, mapping out available resources, choices of possible media combinations, and the likely cost of implications; (2) an indication to the Board of NFU of major policy issues with regard to the use of media by NFU, and cost and educational implications of certain decisions; (3) an indication to potential co- operative partners of practical implications involved in this relationship, the broader framework within which they would be working, and areas where they would need to make clear policy decisions; and (4) a comprehensive account of the development of NFU up to the end of 1978, and the potential media resources available for its development. In addition to descriptions of this project and NFU, this report discusses broadcasting, video and other audiovisual media, telecommunications, correspondence education, publishing and printing, organization in the field, administrative issues for NFU, and costs for an imaginary project. A summary, with conclusions, is followed by a 50-item bibliography. (Most titles are in English or Norwegian). (RAO)
