Zigerell, James, Ed.
Each of the nine articles in this monograph demonstrates the use of a particular telecommunications technology, or a mixture of technologies and media at particular community colleges. Following an introduction by James Zigerell, the monograph presents (1) "Teleconferencing: The Homebound Project at Rio Salado College," by Helen Sprawls, which shows how a telephone in the home or hospital room can offer a direct line between instructor and student; (2) "Audiocassette: A Literature Course from the Bay Area Community College Television Consortium," by George A. Willey, which offers an example of the instructional potential of audio for both direct and supplemental instruction; (3) "Videocassette: Telecourses from the Northern Illinois Learning Resources Cooperative," by Ralph G. Steinke, which explains how a community college consortium offers courses on videocassette in campus learning centers and public libraries; (4) "Videodisc: A Report on Science Laboratory Simulations," by Peter J. Dirr and Victoria Murphey, which discusses a project using videodiscs to simulate science laboratory experiences; (5) "Slide/Tape Modules: Developing Learning Materials in the North Carolina Rural Renaissance Consortium," by Norman Petty, which reports on how a newspaper article was utilized to develop adult learning modules for distance learners; (6) "Educational Access Cable: The Telecommunications System at Kirkwood Community College," by Richard Gross, which describes a model system that combines relatively inexpensive technologies to serve both an urban district and a rural area; (7) "Television: A Computer Course by TVOntario Academy," by David Walker, which shows how broadcasters and educators can work together in extending education and training; (8) "Satellite: The Learning System in British Columbia," by Kathleen Forsythe and Valerie Collins, which demonstrates how a satellite learning system can overcome adult learners' lack of time and problems of distance without sacrificing instructional quality; and (9) "Multimedia: The College of the Air at Mercer County Community College," by George Schwartz, which describes a program employing both broadcast and non-broadcast media to bring educational opportunities to area residents.
