Cost Related Decisions in the Application of Technology at Gallaudet College.
Torr, Donald V.
Gallaudet College, a liberal arts college serving the deaf, has explored educational technology as a way to improve the instructional process for deaf students. Closed-circuit television and on-line computers have been used with the effect of kindling student interest and increasing the capacity of instructors, but no formal analysis has been undertaken to see if the resulting gains in language skills merit the additional expenditures for the new technology. Television has been especially useful when used to present captioned news broadcasts and to present direct translations from sign language to written English. Despite the difficulty of measuring the outcomes of such projects, in the future, cost-effectiveness analysis will be undertaken to assess the benefits derived from the new technology. (EMH)
