A Report on the Videotape-Electrowriter Remote Mode Program in Engineering of the University of Tennessee.
Bohringer, Kenneth C.
The use of Videotape-Electrowriter Remote Mode (VERM) to deliver advanced level engineering graduate courses to student not on the University of Tennessee campus is described. Begun initially as an experimental project in 1969 using videotape equipment to record blackboard presentations, classes are now sent to other campuses and to industries throughout the Southeast using telephone-electrowriter connections. The University of Tennessee currently dedicates two classroom to the taping of on-campus lectures. Master of Science degrees are offered in engineering administration, chemical and metallurical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, and mechanical and aerospace engineering. A total of 135 different courses have been offered, and these have generated a total of 3,134 non-resident enrollments. (DGC)
