Organizational Delivery Systems and Media for Open Learning: The Case for Public Libraries. Working Paper No. 12.
Locatis, Craig N.
The author suggests that "open" university and education programs may require a reconceptualization of processes for selecting media. The media for the delivery of instruction (e.g., computers, television, and film) should be considered along with the role of organizations which use media and those which provide media support. In open learning situations, public libraries may make valuable contributions to the total delivery system. This paper examines: (1) the problem arising from the failure to account for the role of organizations in media selection; (2) the criteria for choosing organizations to assist in the delivery of open education; and (3) the characteristics of public libraries which may determine how libraries "measure up" to the suggested criteria.
