Report on the Stanford Instructional Television Network. Academic Years, 1969-70 Through 1972-73.
Stanford Univ., CA. Stanford Instructional Television Network.
The Stanford Instructional Television Network has completed fours years of operation, broadcasting some 160 hours of live instruction per week over four Instructional Television Fixed Service channels. The Network was designed for use as an interactive system with a two-way FM audio link between the students in off-campus classrooms and the instructors at Stanford. During the period, the Network has experienced an excellent growth of membership, currently having 34 industry and four educational organizations affiliated. Each quarter some 40-45 graduate engineering and science courses are offered by Stanford faculty and many guests. Some videotaped courses are also available for use by auditors at distant locations. Member organizations have been finding this plan valuable as a source of technical updating, crosstraining, or retraining for their professional staff. While doing fulltime work at network member organizations, the Television students can take the program for credit or non-credit. Originally the ratio was 85 percent credit seeking to 15 percent non-credit students; now 28 percent of the students are seeking credit with 72 percent participating in the non-credit categories.
