The Saskmedia Report: Toward the Development of an Integrated Educational Communications and Community College System in Saskatchewan.
The purpose of this study is to develop recommendations leading to the formation of an educational communications policy in the Province of Saskatchewan. Educational authorities in six provinces--British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland--were visited during the study. Questions related to the structure of the varying provincial educational media organizations and their use of film and video tape. Relationships, if any, that exist between educational media authorities, community colleges, and provincial library systems were also explored. In order to meet the legitimate requests of educational and cultural groups within the province, it is proposed that the Saskatchewan Educational Communications Corporation (SASKMEDIA), in concert with the community colleges, develop a three-level approach toward educational radio broadcasting in the province. Level 1 would be the development of a network of medium-power FM transmitters with studios licensed and operated by SASKMEDIA; level 2 would be the development of "Saskatchewan Radio Forums" operated by community colleges over regional AM radio stations; and level 3 would be the development of satellite low-power FM transmitters and studios around the mother medium-power units. A number of recommendations are made. (DB)
