A Plan for Development of an Educational Telephone Network (ETN) to Extend Access to Educational Programs.
Los Angeles Community Coll. District, CA. Div. of Educational Planning and Development.
The outreach development process described in this document is designed to provide a model for planning and implementing a program to extend access to educational opportunity for members of the community served by the Los Angeles Community College District. There are four steps required to initiate such a program: (1) Identification--each college must identify the general types of organizational entities and population segments (private industry, residential areas, government agencies) within its area with a high potential need for general or specialized educational programs; (2) Qualification--a detailed examination of identified potential customers in order to select those best suited for analytical investigation; (3) Subdivision--a determination of the most accessible and desirable segment of the customer's educational needs in order to specify objectives and time frames and to forecast costs; (4) Implementation--the selection of a delivery system that best meets the needs of the target population. An educational telephone network is described as representative of a media-oriented delivery system which may be utilized in place of traditional classroom instruction. Appended are a summary of an evaluation of an educational telephone network course and a cost-effectiveness study. (Author/NHM)
