The Cost and Usage of Study Centres in Distance Education.
Dekkers, J.; And Others
This study was conducted on the cost and utilization of study centers in six distance education institutions representing the three levels of higher education in Australia: colleges of advanced education, universities, and technical and further education. Data were collected using student questionnaires, student interviews, institutional questionnaires, and discussion with staff members at each institution. Specific aims included were to: (1) determine the types of facilities and services currently available at study centers and the level and nature of their utilization; (2) determine the facility and service needs of students and institutions; (3) identify the cost of providing additional facilities and services; and (4) formulate recommendations on preferred configurations of a study center, facilities which should be provided, provision of support staff and services, and arrangements for forming individual study centers into a network. Questionnaire and interview data are presented in separate chapters. The instruments used in the study are appended. (31 references) (GL)
