Non-Broadcast Instructional Video Programming.
Shelton, Marilyn M.
Innovation Abstracts, v5 n35 Dec 2 1983
The TeleMedia Production facility at Golden West College (California) was created to provide non-broadcast video instructional programming. Because of cost considerations, the college chose to use a portable video system. The portable system requires only a small crew, can go on location almost anywhere, and includes an editing capability. Three types of programs are produced: (1) the video lesson; (2) the video series; and (3) the video field trip. The video lesson is a single program or series of programs which can stand alone. Two examples are "Interview for Success," a series of programs on interviewing for specific jobs, and "Physical Assessment of the Neonate," a program which has cut in half the time required for teaching routine material. An example of a video series is"Golden Keys Typing," a self-paced series used in place of lectures. The video field trip is a practical way to take an entire class on a field trip while avoiding the time and expense usually involved. Non-broadcast video programming has been successful in promoting interest and improving performance. This document also includes an account of the development and purpose of "Innovation Abstracts" written by the outgoing editor of the series. (DC)
