The Video Instructional Development and Educational Opportunity (VIDEO) Program encourages all public educational institutions in Missouri to supplement educational opportunities through the use of telecommunications technology, including instructional television programming and satellite broadcast instruction. Three subprograms within the VIDEO program are: (1) grants to public school districts, public institutions of higher education, and public broadcast television stations for equipment and instruction; (2) development of instructional programs to be transmitted through the airways or by cable television, available free of charge to the public; and (3) development of instructional programs to be made available on a subscription basis. An institution or organization may access VIDEO funds in five ways: initial access grants, extension grants, broadcast grants, program development grants, and discretionary grants. When the VIDEO program first awarded grants in 1989-90, 458 local education agencies, 21 institutions of higher education, and 5 public broadcasting stations applied for and received approximately $4,500,000 in initial access and broadcast grants. In the 1995-96 school year, nearly $3.7 million dollars was allocated to local education agencies, institutions of higher education, public broadcasting stations, program development/distribution, and the VIDEO/Technology Conference. The program summary also lists members of the VIDEO committee for 1995-96 and their term expiration dates. (SWC)
