Integrating Existing Material Into Educational Television Programming. Satellite Technology Demonstration, Technical Report No. 0502.
Beard, Karen L.; Lonsdale, Helen C.
The Satellite Technology Demonstration (STD) produced a series of 81 television programs called the "J-series" for junior high school students. This material was used to illustrate real life situations for a career development program. Because materials were expensive, the decision was made to produce "in-house" programs and use preproduced materials for the remainder. Of the 69 prevideotaped "J-series" programs, about 20 percent on-the-air time was used for existing materials. To evaluate the "J-series", the STD measured audience acceptance of existing materials and found that teachers evaluated existing materials as the best program segment but students rated them as second best. The 50 sources who allowed their films to be previewed and an annotated list of five companies as film sources are appended. (Author/DS)
