Telecourses: Reflections '80.
Munshi, Kiki S.
Based on a review of existing literature and interviews with more than 50 individuals at television stations and colleges, this report describes the state of the art of telecourses. Following an introductory chapter, 13 chapters discuss the following aspects of telecourses: (1) definition and scope; (2) the institutional environment; (3) the audience; (4) telecourse adoption; (5) the economics of telecourses; (6) student services; (7) public relations (marketing, publicity, and promotion); (8) interaction between television stations and colleges; (9) factors that help or hinder station-college consortia serving adult learners; (10) benefits and problems; (11) evaluation; (12) alternate delivery systems; and (13) what the future holds for telecourses. Seven appendixes contain information on research from the Station-College Executive Project in Adult Learning (SCEPAL), on state financial support to institutions offering telecourses, on telecourse enrollments, and on a computer recordkeeping system; they also provide sample materials from a typical academic and administrative support package, sample student orientation letters, and other support materials. A bibliography is also included. (RL)
