College Curriculum-Sharing Via CTS.
Hudson, Heather E.; And Others
Domestic communication satellites and video compression techniques will increase communication channel capacity and reduce cost of video transmission. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Ames Research Center, Stanford University, and Carleton University are participants in an experiment to develop, demonstrate, and evaluate the college course sharing techniques via satellite using video compression. The universities will exchange televised seminar and lecture courses via the Communication Technology Satellite. The experiment features real-time video compression with channel coding and quadra-phase modulation for reducing transmission bandwidth and power requirements. Evaluation plans and preliminary results of Carleton surveys of student attitudes to televised teaching are presented. Policy implications for the United States and Canada are outlined. (Author/EMH)
