Distance Education Resource Directory for Northwest Schools.
Holznagel, Donald C.
This directory is designed to address problems of lack of information and planning assistance that can be a barrier to small schools in planning for the use of technology for curricular improvement. The information is most relevant to school districts in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. Section 1 on satellite television, two-way audio, describes organizations that produce complete courses or units of instruction. Descriptions may include a contact with address and telephone number, access information, costs, student enrichment programs, schedule, and instructors. Section 2 describes satellite television services. A narrative discusses services, topics, and costs; the services' addresses and telephone numbers are provided. Section 3 describes broadcast and cable television services in a format similar to that of Section 1. Section 4 on computers and telecommunications is divided into the following subsections: complete courses; supplementary instruction; and databases, bulletin boards, and networks. Descriptions for complete courses follow the format of Sections 1 and 3. The other two subsections follow the format of Section 2. Section 5 describes other distance education assistance: Education Satellite Network, State Telecommunications Networks, State Technology Coordinators, Private Companies, and Regional Telecommunications. Section 5 provides sources for programs and production references and general information references and information on meetings and conferences. Appendixes include a curricular cross-reference, information on planning and decision making and evaluation, and a glossary. (YLB)
