The Implications of Cable Television on Higher Education. Report No. 11.
Williams, Wenmouth, Jr.
A survey conducted by the National Cable Television Association found that cable television (CTV) is not now being utilized for "hard" instruction to help solve some of the current problems in higher education. Since CTV is being merely used as an extension of what exists, it has become an added cost rather than a method of reducing costs. Consequently many educators are calling for action now while CTV is just in the development stages--programs must be developed and empirically tested, and in some cases the FCC must act to support educational provisions. All these require time and the leadership of educators. (SK)
