  • Dear Dr. Dilip,
    There are huge amount of research on teleconfernce, including my own works published in Indian Journal of Open Learning and others. Please do a google search and/or database search on ProQuest/EBSCO.

  • The Edu Dept of the govt of gujarat has initiated BISAG channel. Through DTH and edusat, they telecast everyday 8 hours of live programme with phone-in and live chat through web-cam-internet. I have delivered a lecture in this mode. It is interesting. But still stings are not moving methodologically. SOme format needs to be worked out. Can u suggest me any research or articels on this mode of distance learning?

  • Hi Dr. Dilip, Thanks for so many thought provosking questions. TV has an important role, and it can help in learning provided the lessons are designed appropriately and used appropriately. There are lot of research on this area, but still people do questions of the 'appropriateness' and what and how of appropriate design and use. Satellite and DTH are delivery technology in contrast to the terrestrial microware based technology, and nothing to do with learning except that the satellite tech increases access.

  • What do u think about the success of TV in distance learning? Can TV lectures help in learning? How? What point should we keep in mind while using TV + Sat + DTH for telecasting lectures and what should be kept in mind by the teachers who deliver lectures through Sat-DTH-TV?
