Coming of Information Age in California Higher Education.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This report presents an overview of some of the major issues facing California higher education as it moves into the Information Age. It reviews previous California Postsecondary Education Commission reports on educational technology back to 1979, noting the changing emphasis of those reports from a preoccupation with distance learning to a broader consideration of technology's effects on all aspects of campus life. The report provides descriptive summaries of the ways in which the California Community Colleges, California State University, and University of California systems have incorporated technology in their regular operations, especially in regard to connectivity and infrastructure, teaching and learning, administration and student services. It also examines the possible effects of new technological delivery systems on student learning, particularly in regard to distance education. Three appendixes provide a glossary, a short primer on the Internet, and examples of technology and telecommunications projects being undertaken by California Community Colleges.
