The Humanities for the Handicapped: An Expansion of Media-Based, Open Learning System.
The report describes field testing of an open collge project designed to adapt a collge-level media course for 19 homebound visually impaired, hearing impaired, and orthopedically disabled students. Student recruitment procedures and problems are described, as are staffing patterns of the project. Adaptation of the course, "The Art of Being Human," is reviewed in terms of changes in textbook, television, and computer components for students with visual, hearing, and orthopedic disabilities. External evaluation results from questionnaires completed by students are reported for each disability group, with the general conclusions that students were very pleased with the project. Budgetary information is followed by an evaluation of the project's 12 objectives and a listing of recommendations for replication or development of similar projects. Appendixes include sample news releases, newspaper articles, appraisal forms, and student letters. (CL)
