Notes:
James F. Evans Collection, St. Paul, MN : University of Minnesota, Telecommunications Development Center, Minnesota Extension Service, 1989. 12 p. (TDC Research Report No. 3), Changing student demographics and rising demand for graduate and professional courses, combined with the increasing availability of relatively low-cost instructional technologies, have led many post-secondary institutions to examine the potential for electronic delivery of education. This report describes the approach, findings, and recommendations concerning implementation of distance learning technologies in the Institute of Agriculture, Forestry, and Home Economics at the University of Minnesota. Phase One of the project (assessment and planning) was completed in 1988; Phase Two (strategies and support development) is also completed; and Phase Three (implementation) is underway. The focus of this report is on Phase One, but tentative information on Phase Two is also provided.
