Virtual ll. offers education ll‘fllll distance

i CPE looking

for avenues
to [in/e schools

By Joe Donner

Wolf H 'rirer

“hen the word “Virtual"
tomes up in conversation, it usual--
l} refers to high technology.

The Distance Learning Advi-
sory Committee of the Kentucky's
( Iouncil on l’ostsecondarv l‘iducav
tion is now working on the Com—
monwealth Virtual University.

“It has all of the components of
higher education, except the pro-
fessor and student are not in the
same place," said Larry Fowler,
director of special programs for
the council.

The goal of the committee “is
to provide recommendation to the
(ll’li regarding long-distance
learning initiatives and policies,”
said, Merl llackbart, council and
committee member, and UK pro-
fessor of business and economics.

“The Commonwealth Virtual
University encompasses many of
the activities that would ordinarily
be considered longwlistance learn-
ing," l lackbart said.

“The virtual university isn't a
technical issue. It's tnore of a poli-
cy issue. The technology itist

allows it to happen." said Lee
Todd, committee chairman and
council member, who taught engi-
neering at UK for eight years.
Todd is also the chief executive
officer of Databeam, a Lexington
company that writes libraries and
toolkits used in developin ' telecon-
ferencing software, as we 1 as some
teleconferencing software itself.
“The central question is, ‘What
will the Commonwealth Virtual
University look like?” Todd said.
An example of a virtual university
is the Phoenix University, a national
corporation that began as a corre—
spondence school. Students take
Phoenix classes in their various coin-
munities, and while there is no cen-
tral campus, students get their edu-
cation from the Phoenix University,

whether they attended classes in
Lexington or Los Angeles.

“If our traditional universities
don't position themselves to be
offering education at the deskto ,
they will lose out to for-pro it
institutions,” Todd said.

The Commonwealth Virtual
University isn't about removing
the autonomy from the various
schools in Kentucky, but rather
allowing people better access to
higher education, Todd said.

“Many university presidents
see distance learning as a threat to
their traditional universities, but I
see it as reaching new popula—
tions," Todd said.

George Connick, the Maine
Educational Network president,
spoke recently to the committee

about Maine’s distance learning

About 90 ercent of the stu-
dents using distance learning in
Maine would not have otherwise
sought continuing education,
Connick said. UK already pro-
vides some distance learning ser-
vices, such as televised classes and
some teleconferencing.

“Traditional universities are
provider driven, but this is more
client-driven," said Todd, who
added that the virtual university
allows a student to tailor his or her
education more closely to what
they want to learn.

The committee is currently
studying other virtual universities.
In November, a team of council
members went to Colorado to study

the Western Govemor’s Union.

“We’re trying to learn as much
as we can from peo le who have
already done this,” ' odd said.

Other issues the committee
will look it include financial aid,
cross-registration credit, library
accessibility and advising and

Hackbart said the committee’s
report to the council on March 8
will be a progress report and will
address some of these issues.

The Commonwealth Virtual
University “will im rovc effi-
ciency in postsecon ary educa-
tion delivery and will give our
students access to educational
opportunities that they might
not otherwise have,” Hackbart

Axelrod said. “It’s about what’s
right anytime you have a situa—
tion where you have inclement
weather that could affect the oper-
ations of the University.”

City crews cleared the busy
thoroughfares, such as
Nicholasville, Tates Creek and
New Circle roads, but on the side
streets where many students live,
including Park and Columbia
avenues and Aylesford Place,
rows of cars and truclcs lay buried
under mountains of snow, pre-
venting some students from get-
ting to campus.

The public works division of
the Urban County Government
ranks roads as priority one
through four, one being the high—
est, Carr said.

The city used as many as 23
trucks to salt and plow the streets
around Lexington and those close
to campus, among them Lime-

McClure, administrative officer in
public works.

“We try to prioritize the streets
that have the most traffic on
them," McClure said.

But Aylesford Place, Columbia
and Park Avenue are not on the
department’s priority
list to be plowed.

“Physical Plant and Food Ser-
vices workers still show up,"
Shearer said, but “while the main
arteries are clear the residential
areas are still difficult to move
around in or gain access to.”
