Distance Education for Corporate and Military Training. Readings in Distance Education, Number 3.
Moore, Michael G., Ed.
This publication, which consists of selected readings from volumes 1-5 of The American Journal of Distance Education, is designed for corporate and military trainers who want research-grounded materials that can be used in programs that train trainers. The 12 articles, whose authors come from the army, navy, and airforce, from universities and major corporations, represent various media, different types of organizations, and different processes in the teaching-learning relationship. The articles include: (1) "A Historical Overview of Telecommunications in the Health Care Industry" (Joseph S. Anderson); (2) "Learning from Teletraining" (Allen G. Chute, Lee B. Balthazar, and Carol O. Poston); (3) "Use of Interactive Television for Outreach Nursing Education" (Marilyn B. Major and Donea L. Shane); (4) "A Fourth Generation Distance Education System: Integrating Computer-Assisted Learning and Computer Conferencing" (Allan C. Lauzon and George A. B. Moore); (5) "A Selection Model and Pre-Adoption Evaluation Instrument for Video Programs" (Carla Lane); (6) "Business, Education, and Distance Education" (Stephen Murgatroyd); (7) "Design Considerations in Selecting Teleconferencing for Instruction" (Ellen D. Wagner and Nancy L. Reddy); (8) "Whose Job is Teleconference Reception?" (Shirley Davis and Charles S. Elliot); (9) "A Navy Video Teletraining Project: Lessons Learned" (William L. Maloy and Nancy N. Perry); (10) "Effectiveness of Distance Education Approach to U.S. Army Reserve Component Training" (S. Delane Keene and James S. Cary); (11) "Empowering the Learner through Computer-Mediated Communication" (Lynn E. Davie and Rosalie Wells); and (12) "Effectiveness and Costs of Distance Education Using Computer-Mediated Communication" (Ruth H. Phelps, Rosalie Wells, Robert L. Ashworth, Jr., and Heidi A. Hahn).

Wojciechowski" (Phil Savarise); "Speaking Personally with Kathryn Porter and William Mason (Aetna Life and Casualty)" (Dawn Middleton-Paradise); and "IBM's View of Distance Education: Speaking Personally with Susan Leslie, Dick Scott, and James Tomsic" (Lauren Lukert).
