Satellite Teleconference Final Report.
Elgin Community Coll., IL.
The vocational education satellite teleconference project accomplished two goals: (1) identified, acquired, copied, and distributed to the Illinois Vocational Curriculum Center 100 marketing or training videotapes for staff development and classroom use; and (2) provided from 15-25 variable time (1- to 3-hour) satellite teleconferences in four Illinois community college sites for vocational educators who are also business and industrial users. The five major components of the project were as follows: (1) "Meeting the Special Needs of the Disabled in Education and Sheltering Systems," broadcast on March 22, 1989; (2) "Robotics--Challenges in Motion Control, Planning, and Vision," broadcast on April 6, 1989; (3) "American Management Association's Second Annual Secretaries Briefing," broadcast on April 26, 1989; (4) "Concurrent Engineering of Product and Process--A New Challenge," broadcast on May 3, 1989; and (5) the publication of the Vocational Education Satellite Teleconference Guide. (Six conclusions and recommendations are included in this final report. Three appendices contain the following: (1) abstracts of the four teleconferences; (2) draft of the teleconference guide; and (3) abstracts of 53 archived videotapes, listing subject, reviewer, tape title, viewing time, source, intended level, and description.)
