Study of Telecommunications Programs in Selected Universities in the United States.
A study investigated the nature and extent of telecommunication programs in universities throughout the United States. One hundred and seven institutions were surveyed by questionnaire. The data indicated that 30% operated VHF television channels, 19% UHF channels, and over two-thirds had closed circuit television systems. The survey also revealed that 84% had radio channels and 90% had university owned production facilities. The survey presented statistics on the instructional uses of the systems and their sources of funds and programing. The author concluded that in spite of the widespread availability of telecommunication systems, more innovation and creative uses of the facilities and equipment should be made. (MC)
