Broadcast Evaluation Report Number Three: Instrumentation, T291: TV6.
Bates, A. W.
A course in instrumentation offered through the British Open University included a television program which introduced and illustrated Fourier analysis and transducer response. The television component was evaluated using questionnaires, telephone interviews, and group discussions. The program was successful in that it demonstrated complicated operations which would be costly to provide by laboratory sessions and impossible to provide through home experiment kits. Some problems were encountered by students in relating Fourier synthesis and analysis to tranducer response as presented by the television program. Other difficulties were encountered with program transmission schedules and distribution of textual materials to students. Students generally reacted favorably to the broadcast itself but felt that the broadcast notes were inadequate. (CH)
