An Experimental Remote Question-Answer Scan Television and Student Evaluation System.
Rigas, Anthony L.
Presented is a description of the development and use of a technical system designed to provide students (in this case, engineering students) situated at remote sites a means for better interaction with their instructors. For example, students at such sites cannot get their immediate questions answered because of the physical location of their instructor. Several systems are described in which the instructors visit the remote sites at least one or two times during a given course but at the time of this study, it indicated that no student-oriented audiographic feedback system was being used. The system described, referred to as the remote Q-A unit, consists of a slow scan television (SSTV) camera, a TV monitor, a slow-to-fast scan converter, and an audio tape recorder. This system allows storage of information on audio tape for later presentation. The low date rate of the SSTV allows graphic information to be transmitted over conventional telephone circuits. Goals and plans for use of the Q-A unit are presented. Features and advantages of the system are listed. (EB)
