Directory of Distance Learning in the Mid-Atlantic Region 1990.
This directory is a resource guide to distance education programs operating in the Mid-Atlantic states served by Research for Better Schools: Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The purposes of the directory are to provide (1) a brief overview of the distance learning programs currently operating (in the fall of 1990) in these four states; and (2) the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of contact persons in the states and in local school districts whom the reader might wish to contact for additional information. Each entry includes the following information: contact person, school district involved in the program, type of technology, support technologies, number of years of program operation in the district, course or courses being taught, number of students per course, teacher/facilitator training, and costs for both installation and maintenance. In addition to this information, the contact persons have provided a brief view of the program's strengths and/or weaknesses. A distance learning matrix of the major features and types of technologies, brief descriptions of the types of technologies identified (instructional television fixed service--ITFS, communications satellites, cable television, and computer networks), and a glossary of terms are appended.
