Private Company to Offer 170 Courses by Computer in "Electronic University."
Turner, Judith Axler
Chronicle of Higher Education, v27 n4 p18 Sep 21 1983
TeleLearning System, Incorporated plans to offer correspondence courses by computer. Fifteen universities are participating in TeleLearning Network pilot programs; however, none of the courses are recognized for credit at this time. The courses combine the traditional correspondence course approach with the modern technology of computer-to-computer communications. Some courses will be available on floppy disks, others will be sent lesson-by-lesson to students' computers over telephone lines. Instructor-student communication will also take place over telephone lines. The courses are chosen for their entertainment value, educational content, and the ease with which they can be put on the computer. Instructors will work with technology experts to translate course material to computers and will be paid based on lessons completed. (DC)
