The University of Mid-America: A New Applied Learning System.
McBride, Jack G.
The University of Mid-America (UMA) is a central agency which offers course development services to member institutions and conducts planning, research, and evaluation in the areas of adult education and learning delivery systems. Originally conceived as an outreach program of the State University of Nebraska, UMA has expanded to serve the needs of the entire upper Midwest with television-delivered instruction in traditional academic subjects, cross-disciplinary subjects, continuing professional education topics, and recreational courses. Course development teams generate complete course packages which are then transmitted by state agencies. Two of the needs of the UMA are: (1) additional research in the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of special courses delivered via television; and (2) professionals trained in the eclectic field of television teaching.
