The TAGER-TV Instructional Network.
Norris, R. C.
In eight years of operation, the Texas Association for Graduate Education and Research (TAGER) Television Instructional Network, composed of nine North Central Texas Colleges, has offered 1,132 academic courses. A total of 25,591 students have taken these courses. All instruction is live and features a talk-back system by which students may interrupt instruction with questions. Current research reveals that network problems include the inability of students on remote locations to interact with instructors. Another problem is the general inability of teachers to adapt to television teaching techniques. There have been significant administrative changes at the network, and at present a task force is at work seeking new uses for the microwave network in the general area of continuing education.
