Program Descriptions for the Ludlow and Spooner: Text on Distance Education

You have entered the area on the TESE Web page where the program descriptions for the Ludlow and Spooner text on distance education are stored. We have included 12 special education programs, geographically ranging from Maine to Utah, that deliver coursework to graduate students, as well as undergraduates from both preservice and inservice perspectives. The authors were chosen based on their sustained, successful, experience at distance delivery, and their willingness to address a specific set of questions in a prescribed format.

We hope that as you begin to wrestle with the request to do distance education that you will find these program descriptions useful. Information about the technologies that is used in programmatic delivery, a rationale to support the model of distance delivery that is used at the respective site (e.g., two-way interactive TV vs. satellite), and the resources needed at those universities are just some of the questions to which the authors of the program descriptions respond.
