Distance Delivery of Vocational Education Technologies and Planning Matrixes.
Norenberg, Curtis D.; Lundblad, Larry
This document presents a general review of distance education as it currently pertains to secondary, postsecondary, and adult education. Chapter I discusses the general concepts of distance education. It addresses the nature of distance education and distance delivery, the distance learner, the distance instructor, and distance education learning materials and teaching methods. Examples of distance education and distance delivery are provided. Chapter II presents, compares, and contrasts technologies associated with distance delivery. These technologies include print materials, audio technologies, audio graphic, full-motion video, and computers. A matrix presents the technologies in one dimension and general, learner, teacher, and pedagogical considerations in the other dimension. Chapter III discusses interactive television separately. Matrix 2 compares and contrasts the various interactive television technologies. Costs, advantages, and limitations are considered. The final chapter contains a summary and conclusions. A bibliography is divided into five areas: distance education--background, technologies, distance delivery systems, pedagogical issues, and research issues and studies. (YLB)
