The Combined Use of Radio and Television and Correspondence Courses in Higher Education. (European University and Post-University Distant Study Systems).
The 1960's witnessed in Europe the development of distant study systems based, to begin with, essentially on radio and/or television together with correspondence courses. In secondary education these included the German Telekolleg and the French RTS Promotion, produced under the auspices of the Office Francais des Techniques Modernes d'Education; the success of both of which now seems assured, following that of the Italian Telescuola, an experiment brought to a halt by the Italian Radio and Television Corporation. But it is above all at the postsecondary level that initiatives have flourished, pilot projects being launched that have more often than not led to the establishment of systems that have lasted and are fast expanding. The original subject of this study was the combined use of radio/television with correspondence courses in higher education. It has been broadened to take in all multimedia distant study systems at the postsecondary level, in consequence of the general intrinsic development of these systems, in which radio/TV and correspondence courses are less and less frequently the only media used. The analyses contained in this book concentrate on those systems already in operation or projected that have been studied by the Council of Europe. (Author/PG)
