Alaska Education Experiment. Final Report. Volume I.
Alaska Governor's Office of Telecommunications, Juneau.
Alaska is a state of geographic and cultural extremes. In order to improve the standard of health and to provide broader educational opportunity, especially in rural communities, the ATS-6 communications satellite has been used to compensate for remoteness and transportation difficulties. The Health/Education Telecommunications Experiment has given Alaska its first experience with a prototype operational satellite communications system for the transmission of television and multiple voice channels to low-cost earth terminals. Volume I of the three volume final report provides technical information regarding hardware, site selection, instructional programing, and community involvement in decision making. (EMH)
