The Use of Courseware Teams for Achieving Content Objectives in Television Production. Satellite Technology Demonstration, Technical Report No. 0505.
Linder, Gene; Lonsdale, Helen C.
The Satellite Technology Demonstration (STD) adopted a coordinated approach called the "courseware team concept" to effectively merge content and video production expertise in television programing. To encourage involvement and participation by the entire staff in the production of a television series, a system was designed to avoid an assembly-line process but yet create an atmosphere conducive to open discussion and the exchange of ideas. The courseware team avoided isolation and separation of content in script writing and program execution by combining educators, writers, and television directors into teams charged with meeting the project objectives. This method of programing was highly accepted by the student audience. Two flow charts illustrating personnel and programing are included. (Author/DS)
