Ethical Issues Relating to Teaching via an Interactive Two-Way Television System (ITV).
Thoms, Karen Jarrett
The information age has introduced new methods of delivering educational materials to students. One method is two-way interactive television (ITV). As more schools utilize ITV, for distance education and other educational purposes, certain administrative, legal, and ethical issues need to be addressed. This paper focuses on human and ethical issues to consider before undertaking an ITV project, including: ownership of the course, videotapes, and materials; copyright issues; uses of videotapes; data/media manipulation; reuse of videotapes; reception and transmission of signals; class size; access to library resources; displacement of teachers; program marketing; admission of students; training faculty to use ITV; faculty selection; and student access to instructor.
