Report of the Committee on the Extended University.
Ohio Univ., Athens.
To offer extended learning opportunities to persons without access to traditional residential education is the purpose of the proposed extended university of Ohio University. This new academic unit would be responsible for the development and administration of the Extended Learning Program (ELP). The ELP admits students who have successfully completed an accredited high school course or its equivalency as determined in consultation with the ELP advisory board. A wide variety of learning experiences are recommended for the ELP. Flexible modules of study encompassing independent study, correspondence courses, televised materials, internships, field experience, seminars and workshops, credits by examination, regular classroom study, and credit for demonstrated learning through past experience are proposed. Some traditional programs of study will be encouraged and new units of study will be designed as the need arises. Student evaluation procedures will utilize conventional methods presently in existence including examinations, testing programs, and comprehensive oral examinations. Other nontraditional evaluation methods, such as criterion referenced evaluation, will be developed. This document contains a review of the need and purpose of the ELP at Ohio University, a review of existing models (including the open university, the university without walls, and credit through examination), media systems, admission and counseling, organization and financing of the ELP, and the pilot study for the ELP.
