Satellite Uplink vs. Videotape in Borrower Training.
Hanson, Gregory D.; Parsons, Robert L.
Journal of Extension, v38 n3 Jun 2000
Pennsylvania extension educators used satellite downlinks to provide distance education. However, the use of satellite downlinks was associated with technical difficulties, rigid scheduling, and high costs. Satellite downlinks were replaced with videotaped instructor presentations, which date quickly. The Internet may provide a more flexible and cost-effective alternative to both satellite uplinks and videos. (SK)
