Distance Education Resource Directory for Northwest Schools.
Holznagel, Donald C.; Graves, Gary M.
This directory was developed as a means of addressing the issues of lack of information and inadequate planning assistance which can be a barrier to small schools in preparing for the use of technology for curriculum improvement. For school districts that are considering long-range plans to incorporate distance education technology into the curriculum, this directory can help identify options and their implications and provide up-to-date information about them. Information is geared for northwestern school districts in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. The directory contains sections on satellite television with two-way audio, satellite television only, broadcast and cable television, computers and telecommunications, and other distance education assistance. Each entry profiles a particular distance education service and typically reports on mode of access, costs, and courses offered. Sometimes a contact person is included and schedules and instructor credentials are provided. There is also a list of distance learning information resources, a list of the services contained within separated cross-referenced according to whether they are full courses or supplementary presentations, sections offering advice on planning and evaluation, including a cost planning worksheet, and a glossary.
