Abstract

For over two decades ETV aired locally-produced programs based on the school curricular via government-owned station, Channel 2. Later, in 1999, in an attempt to promote wider geographical and content coverage, ETV started broadcasting 'over and above' school syllabus programs via a commercially-owned satellite station. In 2007, ETV is test-viewed via another station, Channel 9. Another viable option that currently interests the authorities is airing ETV using the web technology. Nonetheless, ETV broadcasted via whatever medium is not a major concern, but the most pertinent issues that need to be addressed in relation to ETV in schools are: (i) level of integration, (ii) barriers to successful integration and (iii) teachers' perception towards ETV. Thus, this paper addresses these issues based on findings from two researches pertaining to ETV integration in the classroom.
