Traversing State Boundaries with Distance Education: The Tri-State Agricultural Distance Delivery Alliance.
Anderson, Erik T.; Makus, Larry; Fanno, Wayne; Swan, Mike
The Tri-State Agricultural Distance Delivery Alliance (TADDA) is a new distance education consortium. The three land grant universities in the Pacific Northwest (the University of Idaho, Oregon State University, and Washington State University) developed TADDA in cooperation with Eastern Oregon University and four of the region's community colleges (College of Southern Idaho, Blue Mountain Community College, Treasure Valley Community College, and Walla Walla Community College). TADDA was established to develop and deliver a bachelor's degree program in general agriculture to distant learners located at community colleges and other learning centers in the region. This paper describes the TADDA consortium and identifies some of the principal challenges that face the alliance. The cultural differences among the three land grant institutions, the regional university, and community colleges tend to be the greatest barrier to inter-institutional collaboration. The challenges of creating a common curriculum, and seamless course development and delivery are also discussed. (Author/DLS)
