A Plan for Distance Education in the Connecticut Community Colleges. [Revised].
Connecticut Community Coll. System, Hartford.
This report presents the distance education plan for Connecticut community colleges. It begins with an overview that discusses the range of instructional technologies, from books to computers to interactive television. The second section of this report looks at distance education in the Connecticut community college system, and describes system organization, mission, and strategic goals; Connecticut community college education technology goals; and the Connecticut Distance Learning Consortium (CTDLC). Section three of this report looks at responsibilities of the system, of the college, and of the faculty and staff. The final section of this report examines the steps that will follow the approval of this distance education plan. Future priorities include such items as: developing a full distance degree program, perhaps in General Studies, that will be marketed as part of every college's course offerings, system-wide; addressing and resolving the logistics involved in offering such program(s); publishing a matrix of distance learning courses in the 12-college system, so the system-wide degree offerings can be expanded in a proactive rather than reactive way; setting up an incentive for faculty to develop the required distance learning courses (not in the matrix) for additional system-wide degrees; and hiring a Coordinator of Distance and Extended Education.
