Request for information about adult students and their note taking habits, and study habits when studying via television. Given the fact that a great deal of use is made of TV in delivering material to students in the US of A and Canada (as examples), I am writing to ask for assistance in tracking down any work that has been done in the area of the heading above. I am especially interested in ascertaining whether, or not, students find their notes to be valuable or if in fact they are frustrated by the difficulty involved in this task. Have students moved towards a more pictorial format in their notes? in place of trying to take the delivery word for word? Do they as a matter of course tape the show and then re-play it several times to maximise their understanding and retention? If so are they spending an inordinate amount of time doing this? Has there been any research into the correlation between the students who do not have VCR's and those who do in terms of the assessment results they attain. If you can help me out with any aspect of my inquiries above please respond to the list as usual or post to me individually at firstname.lastname@example.org It is my intention to complete a study along similar lines with respect to the TV Open Learning Project being conducted in Australia over 1992 and 1993. I will make my findings known to those who contrinute. My apologies to those of you receiving multiple copies due to my cross posting. many thanks in advance Tony Dean email@example.com Information Technology and Communiation Unit University of Wollongong Australia
