A Guide to the Literature on Application of Communications Satellites to Educational Development.
Morgan, Robert P.; Singh, Jai P.
Because of the ability of communications satellites to distribute electronic information (radio, television, digital computer data) over wide areas with potentially attractive costs, considerable interest has been shown in using satellite technology to enhance educational programs, both in the United States and in other countries. In view of these developments, this literature guide provides an introduction to satellite technology; to nontechnical aspects of satellites, including economic, organizational, social, political, and legal factors; and to educational and developmental uses of satellites, including experiments and systems planned or proposed. Also included is a basic reference shelf, providing the reader with a broad overview and a good starting point for a more detailed literature investigation, and a guide to organizations with interest in educational satellite utilization. A bibliography which lists other relevant entries concludes the paper. (Author/SH)
