This paper discusses applications of the systems approach and of resource-based learning in Technical and Further Education; examines existing educational delivery systems and the potential impact of new technological developments on those systems; and considers a number of initiatives which could be taken to use technology to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the learning/teaching process. It is argued that technology can be applied to reduce some educational costs, increase the effectiveness of instruction in many training-oriented subjects, and extend learning opportunities to the community at large, while providing more selective coverage to special user groups. Such applications of high technology as computer-based education, instructional television, and mass media are discussed, as well as the potential impact of personal computers, videodisc, Teletext/Viewdata, cable television, and satellite communications. The use of relatively unsophisticated technologies--in-house produced resource materials, community radio, and community television--are described to indicate the level of educational technology that can be developed and utilized at college level. The implications of the new technologies for educational content and methodology are discussed and it is concluded that the introduction and integration of information technology into TAFE learning and teaching programs must be given high priority. A list of 22 references is provided. (CHC)
