Experimental Activities 1967 through 1972. Summary of the Final Report. The Committee for Television and Radio in Education (the TRU Committee).
Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs, Stockholm (Sweden).
This report by the Committee for Television and Radio in Education (the TRU Committee) summarizes the activities of the Committee in the field of instructional media from 1967-1972. The Committee, which is funded by the Swedish government, plans and conducts experimental projects concentrating on the development, production and evaluation of teaching material in which television and radio or video and audio tape are integrated parts. The TRU Committee has its own production unit and has produced 58 package courses, including 755 television programs or films, and 709 radio programs, audiotapes, audio-cassettes or radiovision programs at all instructional levels. TRU also evaluates and sponsors instructional equipment and conducts experiments such as one designed to compare the educational effect of color television with monochrome television in the teaching of anatomy. The TRU Committee feels that the results have been encouraging in all areas and recommends that the TRU Committee should be reorganized into a central resource for educational development work and the design of teaching aids.
