Experimental Trends in Videoprogramming.
A review of experimental activities in educational broadcasting shows that mass television and instructional television, as we think of them today, are likely to constitute two points on a greatly expanded spectrum of television concepts in the future. Television will become much more like the publishing industry, with its mix of pamphlets, art books, manuals, best sellers, and Whole Earth Catalogs. Educators will have to find ways of incorporating some of these experimental approaches into the production process. In some cases, it will mean getting video freaks and artists to work jointly with the more traditional instructional television producers. However, key questions must be answered about how media facilities at our institutions of higher learning should operate in the future and what they should look like. For example, should these facilities be primarily oriented to serving the needs of large-scale university publishing projects that are intended to produce very high quality programing for a broader market? Or should they serve the needs of the faculty member or student who wants to utilize a half-inch video recorder as part of a specific learning experience? (WCM)
