McLaughlin, G. Harry; Jacobs, Dorene E.
The Ryerson Open College in collaboration with the Ontario Educational Communications Authority offered a multimedia, introductory credit course in sociology in 1972. Of the 173 students who participated in the course evaluation, only 18 percent completed all of the four questionnaires which constituted the evaluation data. Student grades and dropout rates were examined relative to students' age, sex, employment status, and previous education. Students also rated the relative merits of television lectures, radio discussions, and other instructional activities. Student attitudes, costs, and benefits are also discussed. (EMH)
