Audio Alternatives For Learning. A Concept Paper.
Moore, Robert C.
A brief review of recent demands and trends in adult education for nontraditional students is followed by a discussion of the design and purpose of audiocassette programs offering full and transferable college credit toward a degree. The development of audio courses is traced from the Ohio School of the Air, presented on radio in 1929, to the present, and the current program at West Virginia Wesleyan College is described. A review of the literature on the effectiveness of audio instruction concludes the paper, and a 17-item bibliography is attached. (MER)
