1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Intended to provide a comprehensive picture of the Appalachian Community Service Network (acsn), this report documents its evolution from a federally funded regional educational experiment to a nonprofit corporation delivering educational and informational programming via commercial satellite to cable subscribers across the nation; ACSN's changing objectives, organizational structure and programming emphasis in response to the commercial marketplace; and the corporation's plans to capitalize on foreseeable opportunities. A general, interpretative account is given of the background history of the Appalachian Educational Satellite Project (aesp) experiment, which supplied graduate credit courses to teachers located in remote areas of the Appalachian region using an experimental nasa (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) satellite from 1972 to 1975. The maintenance, refinement, and expansion of the original mission of aesp from 1976 to 1978 are described, including the development of a strong research and evaluation program to guide network operations. The incorporation of acsn in 1979 as an independent agency is documented, and it is noted that the network provided 64 hours per week of programming to more than 1.5 million homes in 42 states in 1982. a look at current needs and problems and speculations on the future of the network conclude the report. A number of exhibits and appendices are included. (Lmm)
The Reshaping of an Innovation. Acsn-the Learning Channel, 1974-1982. an Executive Summary Prepared for National Institute of Education by M. Jay Douds( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This summary describes the development of the Appalachian Community Service Network (acsn), an educational cable television network that was originally launched as an experimental demonstration in the use of the latest telecommunications for the delivery of educational services. In describing how the stage was set for the eventual development of acsn, the first chapter reviews the program's original funding as the Appalachian Education Satellite Project (aesp) by the National Institute of Education through a grant to the Appalachian Regional Commission (arc) in the early 1970s. Individual sections focus on the aesp experiment, which began with 15 receive sites in 8 Appalachian states; the plan for its transition into an expanded, self-sustaining organization; and the use of the nasa (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) ats-6 communications satellite. The second chapter traces the development of acsn into an independent, nonprofit organization using a commercial satellite to provide 3,300 hours of programming annually to a nationwide audience, and the changes for the organization produced by the addition of cable television distribution. A look at acsn and the future discusses its new name, ACSN-The Learning Channel, and its business plan, program services, program syndication, and corporate development. (Lmm)
