Three Models for Home-Based Instructional Systems Using Television.
The use of television as a component of instructional programs designed for home-based students was studied. Three on-going programs--Chicago's "TV College;" Bavaria's "Telekolleg", and a Children's Television Workshop series, "Sesame Street"--were chosen for examination. The planning and development stages of these three projects are discussed, pointing out the procedures, activities, and elements of each that appear particularly significant to its success. A checklist of items necessary in the development of a new instructional program using television classifies under four phases those components necessary for success. A general model is described that synthesizes the successful components in the preplanning, planning, promotion, production, operations, and evaluation stages, and gives a comparison of costs. (JY)
