Diversity in Northeastern California: Television as a Partial Solution to the Solution.
Wright, Leslie J.; Urbanowicz, Charles F.
This paper gives a brief overview and history of the Instructional Television Fixed Service (ITFS) begun at California State University, Chico (CSUC) in the spring of 1975, and describes the on-going operations of television activities at CSUC, the only five-year institution of higher education in Northeastern California. Currently known as "Instructional Television For Students" (ITFS), the one-way video, two-way audio microwave network is credited with creating a feeling of "community" throughout the region, and putting CSUC on the "cutting edge" of educational technology in California. Chico offerings in the fall of 1980 included 16 upper division university courses and two non-credit workshops with nine instructional sites in the region, ranging from 140 miles to 44 miles from the campus. Enrollment data are presented in two attached tables and seven references are listed. (LLS)
