The Central Educational Network's Postsecondary Service.
Koffarnus, Carol A.
Rapid technological advances will double America's information system every 8 years. As a result, adults in and out of the work force will need continual updating of the information and skills they use in all aspects of life. Of the current 58.4 million adults engaged in some form of organized education, only 12.4 million are attending colleges or universities. The Central Educational Network formed its Postsecondary Education Council in 1979 to create a postsecondary telecommunications service. The council currently consists of a representative from each of 10 statewide councils that have their own bylaws and structures and are composed of members from public broadcasting agencies and postsecondary academic and vocational institutions. The 10 states participating in the council at present are Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. This document describes the council's goals and services, its assessment of fees and distribution of costs, and its plans for future growth. (Author/PGD)
