Using Mass Media For Learning.
Yarrington, Roger, Ed.
The nine articles in this collection by members of the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges' Task Force on the Uses of Mass Media for Learning are concerned almost entirely with television, since the telecourse is the medium with which the most experience has been gained and which has the most potential for many community colleges. The individual articles address the following topics: (1) the history of instructional television including a discussion of the necessity of cooperative activities among colleges; (2) consideration of various programming elements for successful development of working relationships with broadcasters; (3) the roles of technology, demographic changes, and heightened awareness of the function of lifelong learning in serving the adult learner's needs; (4) the economics of television-centered courses in terms of acquisition of materials, development of a delivery system, and the delivery of services; (5) college television consortia and their governance, administration, financing, and legal bases, and relationships with broadcasters; (6) telecourse design, development, and evaluation; (7) the role of the faculty in mass media courses; (8) communication with distant learners and time and space factors; and (9) effective community promotion of telecourses.
