About the publication

This report of a workshop held at the IIEP in October 1980, is based upon a survey of twelve selected distance learning systems throughout the world, in which media play a significant role. Different kinds of distance learning systems using or planning to use audio-visual media are described, and the areas of difficulty in planning such media are identified. The author analyses the educational functions of audio-visual media and the difficulties of transmission and distribution of such materials. Production of broadcast and non-broadcast audio-visual materials are reviewed as well as their financial implications
