Distance Learning with Microcomputers in the Virgin Islands
This paper discusses distance learning with microcomputers and describes how the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) has used and plans to utilize this technology. The paper is divided into the following topics of discussion: (1) distance learning systems with microcomputers; (2) educational needs of the U.S. Virgin Islands; (3) a profile of UVI; (4) the beginnings of distance learning at UVI; (5) a distance learning experiment in BASIC programming using telecommunications equipment (remote site versus home learning site learning); (6) 17 general findings based on the results of the study; (7) recent research and development in remote site learning; and (8) future directions in distance education using microcomputers.
