Linking Classrooms of the Future through Interactive Telecommunications Network
Ponney G. Cisco
This document describes an interactive television (ITV) distance education network designed to service rural schools. Phase one of the network involved the installation of over 14 miles of fiber optic cable linking two high schools, a career center, and the University of Rio Grande; phase two will bring seven high schools in economically depressed communities online with ITV capabilities. The scope of the project and management strategies are discussed, and ITV educational goals are listed. An outline of transmission technologies for distance education and a project task chart conclude the paper. (DB)
