Language Telecourses for Adults--Pros and Cons.
Pearlman, Marianne Spencer
Mid-Atlantic Journal of Foreign Language Pedagogy, v1 p58-76 Spr 1993
Telecommunicated learning has been available since the 1930s, with the use of radio for instruction. Research has been conducted on its effectiveness, but little that focuses on the specifics of language learning. In the past two decades, language telecourses have proliferated and are used widely for adult education. This article reports on the experience with language telecourses at Catonsville Community College (Maryland), comparing the success of telecourse students (the number who earn a grade of "C" or better) to that of students in regular courses. More studies need to be conducted on the proficiency of telecourse students versus that of regular students. (Author)
