VIDEO EDUCATION FOR WORKING ENGINEERS
The operation is described of MICROCAMPUS, a project which utilizes video-technology to move the classroom experience to thousands of students in their various locations in the U.S. and one foreign country. Courses are selected by the remote students from a choice of about one hundred in engineering, business administration, liberal arts and home economics. The "students" are all fully employed as engineers, managers, technicians etc. The details are briefly outlined of the project in which, within hours of recording, the video cassette - along with whatever hard copy from the Professor- is mailed to its remote destination. It is returned after 2 weeks. A service charge is made to the user. The 2-year project has demonstrated its pedogogic effectivity, but its economic feasibility remains to be astablished.
