State Education Network Survey.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), with the help of its Educational Technology Cooperative and its Wide Area Networking Task Group, designed a survey to identify the computer networking resources in the 15 SREB states. The survey was conducted to identify: (1) the various statewide educational networks in each of the SREB states; (2) the technologies that constitute the infrastructure for these networks; (3) the educational programming delivered through these networks; and (4) the important policy issues in educational networking. The report contains information about statewide networks in the SREB member states that serve the education community and are under state authority. The report covers: network description, network connection, rate structure, instructional programming, funding, staffing, and the more challenging policy issues related to educational networking. Summaries of SREB statewide networks are followed by a longer description of networks in each state: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. An appendix listing survey participants by state and a glossary are provided. (Author/SWC)
