The Use of a Satellite Human Interaction System in Conjunction with a Satellite Media Distribution System. Satellite Technology Demonstration, Technical Report No. 0217.
Dale, Joyce B.
Satellite Technology Demonstration (STD) was designed to provide data on the use of a satellite to deliver educational programs to 56 rural-isolated schools in eight Rocky Mountain States. Three series were broadcast: (1) a junior high school career development, (2) career development for public school administrators and teachers, and (3) topical programs for community members. The STD also used the Advanced Technology Satellite (ATS-3) as an interactive voice-link with 24 participating schools and recorded this data. Schools were defined as "interactive" and "noninteractive." Across all measures, the interactive students showed a greater number of learning gains and larger gains on those tests which reflected the cognitive aspects of the STD programing. The results of this research suggested that a satellite audio interaction system would enhance the quality of educational programing via satellite. Statistical tables show the results of measurements. (Author/DS)
