Linking Schools to University Resources via Interactive Television.
McDevitt, Margaret A.; Greenwood, Anita M.
This paper describes the way in which the University of Lowell Instructional Network is being used to provide local schools with access to the university's facilities and faculty. The STAR (Science Teachers Accessing Resources) program is described in detail from its inception, through the planning stages, culminating in two-way television transmissions. The benefits of this program for schools and university alike have proven to be many-fold, including increased collegiality between university faculty and local school teachers, heightened interest of students in science, and collaboration providing an opportunity to recruit students to the university and, in particular, to the science programs.
