Creating Educational Opportunities for Engineers with Communication Technologies.
Baldwin, Lionel V.
The large number and known career patterns of engineers make them an important target population for the use of videotechnology in programs of continuing professional education. Currently, universities use videobased instruction with engineering students on and off campus. A variety of signal delivery systems are used to link job sites to campuses. Projections of video course enrollment in engineering shows continuing steady growth even with present technology. New developments including videocassettes, videodisc, cable television, satellite distribution, interactive linking of input/receiving stations and computer control of cable delivered systems can accelerate this growth. Expansion could also be facilitated by cooperative development of curricula by engineering colleges, expanded participation of engineering faculty and increased capital investment in video publishing. The report contains a bibliography and a listing of university video based engineering programs. (KB)
