Broadcast Evaluation Report Number Two: Cumbria Case Study, E221: TV3 R6.
The Open University of Great Britain is an open-enrollment, home-based educational system in which the majority of the instruction is conducted via broadcasts and correspondence. One radio program, one television program, and the related readings from a course on decision-making in the British Education System were evaluated to see if they: 1) related to the course to which they were associated; 2) provided an experience which could not otherwise conveniently be presented; and 3) achieved a good blend of broadcast and written material. Using a mailed questionnaire and telephone interviews, a survey measured student viewing and listening time and participant satisfaction with the integration of the broadcasts, the guest speakers, the usefulness of the programs, and the entertainment value of the programs. When students were queried about the extent that they used the course literature to prepare for broadcast, it was shown that course materials were not used in the way they were intended. (EMH)
