Technical Report on Tele-Communications.
San Mateo County PACE Center, Redwood City, CA.
To provide background material for those interested in tele-communication in education and for those planning to implement such programs in their schools, a research study was conducted to gather information from a variety of sources including educational and technical experts, conference participation, visits to schools conducting projects, and the recent literature in the field. The study surveys five aspects of tele-communication beginning with the advantages and utility of television in education. Tele-communication systems such as the standard radio frequency and video distribution systems, microwave distribution systems, 2500 megacycle television, and dial access systems are discussed. Alternatives such as audio learning laboratories, telelectures, films, various still projection techniques, and audio-visual-tutorial systems are considered. Some problems in planning and implementing a system are detailed, and approaches to solving them are proposed. Finally, the types of available research data and some of the potentials for future tele-communication use are surveyed. Extensive appendices list current television projects, equipment manufacturers, organizations associated with educational television, consultants and experts in the field, basic equipment and costs, and several bibliographies. This material was developed under a Title III/ESEA grant. (MT)
