Summary

An informal consortium was formed in 1983 by five postsecondary educational institutions and the educational television authority in British Columbia to cooperate in using audio teleconferencing for course delivery, and to conduct a pilot project between September 1983 and May 1984. The consortium members (Simon Fraser University, British Columbia Institute of Technology, the Open Learning Institute, the University of Victoria, and the University of British Columbia) have pooled audio teleconferencing equipment, staff, and facilities to improve province-wide services and to reduce operating costs. Each institution operates independently, confirming only that equipment and facilities are available. The choice of programs and how the teleconferencing is used by an instructor varies among institutions. Use of audio teleconferencing as a delivery mode has risen sharply since September 1983, with the greatest use being in continuing professional education, often in cooperation with professional societies. The results of teleconferencing activities since the inception of the consortium have been encouraging, and the consortium anticipates an expansion of the system from its present 23 sites to 35 in 1984/1985 and continued expansion by a minimum of 25% in hours of use by June 1985. A map showing the locations of British Columbian teleconferencing centers is included. (Author/LMM)
