Summary

Considerations relating to the design of organizational structures for development and control of large scale educational telecommunications systems using satellites are explored. The first part of the document deals with four issues of system-wide concern. The first is user accessibility to the system, including proximity to entry points, ability to pay, permission to use facilities, and control over use. Next, integration and control of the system's components by private or public agencies are considered. Third, the matter of equipment control is covered. Fourth, the question of what developmental initiatives are needed in order to move from concept to action is dealt with. Four issues relating to specific system components are included in the second part of the report. These are the sources of software programing, software storage, the means of its transmission, and the matter of local and regional distribution. Also treated are the social consequences of educational networking. (Author/PB)
