Phase II Feasibility Study to Gather Information for Implementing Telecommunications into Office Technology Curriculum. Final Report.
Henson, Linda; Sanders, Myrna
Phase II of a feasibility study to gather information for implementing telecommunications into the office systems and technologies curriculum at Jefferson College began in January 1984. The objectives were to provide the instructional staff with the technical information needed to teach telecommunications and to explore the possibility of establishing a telecommunications network for community colleges in the Midwest. The business community served as the resource for information on telecommunications technology. Researchers visited companies involved in telecommunications and talked with telecommunications personnel from other companies to gather the general information. Several companies provided equipment demonstrations and copies of manuals. Discussion with MCI representatives and use of MCI Mail on a daily basis showed that the procedure for implementing a college telecommunications network could be accomplished at a relatively low cost for each participating school. (Attachments include a description of procedures, delivery and rates of telecommunications services, and a bibliography.) (YLB)
