Extended Learning Program Report to the Cleveland Commission on Higher Education, Ohio University, and the Ohio Board of Regents.

This report examines the results of a survey of 110 students enrolled in Ohio University's Extended Learning Program (ELP) in Cleveland. The questionnaire was designed to provoke comments and criticisms concerning student preferences for scheduling, types of courses to be offered and student recommendations for improving ELP. Results are categorized according to an ELP student profile, administration of ELP, the curriculum, credit hours, financing, the Bachelor of General Studies Degree, and reactions to Ohio University recommendations. Some of the student recommendations suggest: (1) ELP must be better integrated into traditional, existing educational programs. (2) Alternative means of earning academic credits must be built into more Ohio institutions of higher education. (3) Through in-service training, faculty should be given the skills to help students prepare learning contracts. (4) Guidelines for the development of criteria for granting credits for work and other life experience should be established. (5) Meetings and seminar topics of common interest should be made available as part of the ELP program and should be given for credit. (6) A blue ribbon policy committee of faculty, administrators and lay people should be empowered to make decisions concerning the ELP on a state-wide basis. (MJM)
