A Primer on Telecommunications in Education. Part of: A Planning Document for the Establishment of a Nationwide Educational Telecommunications System.
Pilnick, Carl; Glixon, Harry R.
Intended as a general reference handbook for those concerned with applying telecommunications technology to the process of education, this survey focuses on the use of the technology rather than the technology itself. It reviews engineering or technical aspects to provide sufficient background to permit the reader to evaluate each component or system with respect to educational objectives. It also provides relevant cost and coverage data which will assist in developing the foundation for more effective application of telecommunications. In addition, the volume provides descriptions of the components and techniques used in educational telecommunications; it reviews the carrier and distribution subsystems available for transmission; it offers examples of integrated educational systems; and it forecasts trends, future applications, and projected evolutionary telecommunications networks.
