Some Aspects of Educational Broadcasting in Sweden. A Report of a One-Week Study Visit. IET Papers on Broadcasting No. 94.
Bates, A. W.
This report on the organization, development, and dissemination of educational and commercial radio and television programs by the Swedish Educational Broadcasting Company includes some of the research being done at the Open University. A planned reorganization of Sveriges Radio into two separate television channels and several channels for local radio is described, as well as programming of adult educational programs on radio, several newer television programs for the schools, and research by the Audience Research Department of Sveriges Radio and the Education Department. Distance teaching in higher education is available in three forms: university study circles, organized by the independent educational associations in collaboration with a university or college department; decentralized university courses which enable students to enroll on either a part-time or full-time basis in another town outside the university; and distance educational studies consisting of correspondence courses with additional study guides and booklists.
