Productive Delivery Systems for Nontraditional Learning.
Walton, Wesley W.
College-level instructional programs using a variety of media and aimed at adults pursuing degrees, specialized knowledge, or enrichment are described. The types of programs covered are: (1) learning programs which use a combination of various technologies, such as a text, study guide, audiocassettes, television programs, newspaper features, learning centers, Wide Area Telephone Service (WATS) lines, and reading lists; (2) programs which utilize mainly television lectures, supported by audio communication beamed to a specialized audience; (3) programs which employ public television, mail, and newspapers to reach a more heterogeneous audience; (4) programs which feature independent home study by correspondence alone, perhaps supported by local resource facilities, audiocassettes, a WATS line, or by minimal campus attendance; and (5) programs created by certain public libraries which outline a special independent learning project, select related educational materials, and provide support conferences. A 10-page annotated bibliography provides information on additional programs. (NR)
