Colorado Distance Learning Resources: Instructional and Staff Development Programming Available to Colorado School Districts. 1992-93 School Year.
Colorado educators interested in expanding curricular offerings in their elementary and secondary schools and providing staff development programs to their teachers and staff have many tools at their disposal. One of the most popular is the use of distance education and other telecommunications technologies to provide courses and individual programs that would not otherwise be available. The Educational Telecommunications Unit has prepared a listing of all distance education programs available for use in Colorado school districts. The listing is organized to allow educators access to program information by course provider or by subject area. The first section is organized by provider and contains such information as courses and programs available, subscription and student fees, equipment needed, class schedules, video rights, and expectations for classroom facilitators and contact persons at each institution. The second section is organized by subject area and includes available courses and their providers. The following providers are included: Arts and Sciences Teleconferencing Service (ASTS)--Oklahoma State University, Colorado Department of Education, Kansas State University, Mass LearnPike, Satellite Telecommunications Educational Programming (STEP), TI-IN Network, and the University of Alabama. Courses available from Colorado institutions are also listed. (DB)
