Tekin, Cengiz; And Others
This proposal begins with a discussion of technologies used by distance education programs to deliver instruction, including the use of video by the Open Education Faculty (OEF) at Anadolu University in Turkey. The first of five chapters discusses modes of communication that can be used in distance education together with their functions. Specific media described include written materials, educational television and radio, face-to-face communications, and videotape education. The second chapter describes the distance education situation in Turkey, provides a short history of Anadolu University, and explores the use of various modes of communication by the OEF, i.e., books, television and radio broadcasts, local face-to-face communication through Student Information Bureaus (LSIB) and the Academic Advising Teaching Service (AATC), and the "Anadolu Newspaper" for distance education students. Chapter 3 is devoted to a discussion of video and distance education, the facilities video would bring to the OEF, how a video education center operates, the organization of the OEF Student Information Bureau's Video Education Libraries, and the coordination unit of the Video Education Center. The fourth chapter briefly describes four OEF units--Academic Advising Centers, the Radio Club, the Anadolu Newspaper, and the Anadolu University Data Processing Center--that would cooperate with the Video Education Center, and outlines preparations needed before beginning to offer distance education services via video. Chapter 5 details a proposed pilot project that would conduct a formative evaluation of the video education services prepared by the Video Education Centers (VEC).
