Assessing Characteristics and ITV Interests of Students Enrolled in Telecourses at Central Texas College. Societal Factors.
Zeiss, Paul A.
The findings of a survey conducted in January 1978 to determine the interests and characteristics of students enrolled in telecourses at Central Texas College, are reported. Questionnaires were returned by 41 percent of the telecourse students. Responses indicated that the large majority of these students were married Caucasian females between the ages of 18 and 35; most of them were working for wages or a salary, and had taken a telecourse because of the convenience factor. A majority of the respondents had already completed some college credit work, were enrolled in other on-campus courses, were working toward a degree or certificate, and had learned about the telecourse through brochures or class schedules picked up on campus. As a result of the study, it was recommended that an annual study on the interests and characteristics of telecourse students be implemented in order to continue basing telecourse selections on actual student interests.
