Interactive Distance Learning: An Impetus for Collaboration.
Geer, Cynthia
In 1993, a partnership was formed between Cincinnati Bell Telephone, Clermont County Educational Service Center, University of Cincinnati-Clermont College, county businesses and 12 schools. Through this partnership, a distance learning project was envisioned that would enhance learning opportunities with technology. This paper describes how the Clermont County Distance Learning Project was developed. Discussion includes funding; roles and persons vital for a successful distance learning program, including principals, guidance counselors, coordinators/technical people, and parents; collaboration across the districts; common guidelines across the districts; community services; plans to develop professional development and mentoring programs; and the importance of flexibility and commitment. Also discussed are frequently asked questions such as the lack of discipline problems at remote sites; what the system looks like; teachers' responsibilities; costs of the distance learning lab; and teachers' attitudes toward the network.
