Enabling Technologies for Adult Distance Learners.
Usrey, Michael W.
Adult education and distance education are two of the fastest growing segments of the education market. Technological and procedural improvements need to be focused concurrently on three domains: course delivery technologies, course/program administration and course content. Delivery technologies, such as satellite, CATV, CD and World Wide Web, are perhaps the most visible area of change. Administrative procedures can benefit from both process re-engineering and emerging technologies such as the World Wide Web, touch-tone, speech recognition and facsimile (fax). Improvements in course content have the potential to benefit both traditional and non-traditional students. The Lockheed Martin Engineering Management Program at the University of Colorado, which has grown over the span of a decade to serve on-campus, live video and videotape students across the country and around the world, serves as an example of both progress that is possible in these areas and of the improvement opportunities yet to exist.
