Pathways to Success: Using Technologies To Reach Distant Learners.
Annenberg/CPB Project, Washington, DC.
This report contains information on institutions that submitted proposals for integrating technology in education to the Annenberg/CPB (Corporation for Public Broadcasting) Project's New Pathways to a Degree program. It is noted that, although the 243 proposals received contained a number of innovative ideas about how to use technologies to improve both the accessibility and the quality of higher education, only seven of them could be funded. The program information is presented under four headings: Recruitment and Orientation; Program and Course Development and Delivery; Support Services; and Faculty Development. Each proposal is described briefly, and a contact person and telephone number are listed. The appendices provide information about the "New Pathways to a Degree" program, the 7 funded projects, and 31 new Pathways Associates. More detailed descriptions are given of the funded projects--at the College of St. Catherine, St. Paul, Minnesota, Indiana University--Purdue University at Indianapolis, Indiana; University of Maine at Augusta; Northern Virginia Community College; Oregon State System of Higher Education (OSSHE), Eugene, Oregon; the Rochester Institute of Technology, New York, and West Virginia University, Morgantown--as well as a brief description the Annenberg/CPB Project and lists of its television and audio course collections and research reports. Brief descriptions of six technology demonstration projects conclude the report. (DB)
