Teaching by Cable: The Experience of One University.
Smith, Ralph Lee
Planning for Higher Education, v4 n4:2/5 Aug 1975
The use of cable television at Oregon State University is described in the sixth of a series of profiles that will document the experiences of 24 institutions. Implementation of the technology is reviewed, as well as methods by which the educational needs of the university were met by it. Inducements for the cable operator are cited. In the early years of the cable program, a number of courses were offered simultaneously in televised and conventional classroom form, which offered an opportunity to compare the achievement of students in the two settings. Benefits of the cablecasting program are described, such as: easy use of audiovisuals, increased innovation, small closed circuit users, and impact on university-community relations. Some disadvantages and problems are mentioned, but it is also noted that the cablecasting operation results in substantial savings for the university. Suggestions for implementing such a program are offered. (LBH)
