Television and Technology in University Teaching. A Report to the Committee on University Affairs, and the Committee of Presidents of Universities of Ontario.
A comprehensive study of the role of television and technology was conducted among the Universities of Ontario in order to evaluate educational technology as a means of enhancing university level education. Television was the most controversial aspect of study because the associated costs required system-wide consideration. From this light, a case was made for instructional television by elucidating the variety of applications it offered, the advantages of inter-university cooperation, the sophistication of the hardware, and the costs relative to usage. The British Open University, the current forerunner in the field of educational technology in higher education, was structurally reviewed for comparison and support to the cause of television. A set of recommendations was developed generally supportive of the expansion of instructional technology, particularly television, efforts in the system. (MC)
