British Open University: Media Used in Context.
Weinstock, Ruth
Planning for Higher Education, v4 n2:3/5 Apr 1975
The experience of an open university with the uses of technology in higher education is documented. The emphasis is on its exemplary use of educational technology in context. Examination of the details of how the Open University employs media to serve a large dispersed student body may benefit others who plan to expand or modify their own uses of educational technology. Details are given on traditional and innovative curricula, study materials and support activities, local study centers, teachers and course production, the integration of the media, student performance, central university facilities, and costs. Certain features considered to be significant factors in the success of the university are outlined along with existing or potential problems. (Author/LBH)
