Abstract

A classroom/lab-based graduate telecommunications course was studied to discover implications for online instruction of related topics and skills. The analysis focused on: (1) examining the potential for teaching telecommunications via an Internet-mediated virtual classroom to public school personnel situated at their home districts; and (2) considering methods for using student learning assessment information gathered online in evaluating and adjusting the learning process. The proposed model emphasizes experiential learning, supportive collegial interaction, and meaningful and useful learning assessment. Learning Process Control (LPC), an adaptation for education of TQM's Statistical Process Control (SPC), is introduced as a visual-analytical method for evaluating the learning progress of large numbers of distant students and for using online information to continuously improve the learning process. Appendices provide the telecommunications course schedule and a chronological topic sequence. (Contains 24 references.) (Author/AEF)
