The School of Systems and Logistics, Air Force Institute of Technology AFIT, located at Wright-Patterson OH, is responsible for providing graduate and professional continuing education PCE to the Air Force, and in selected interest areas, to the Department of Defense D0D. Neither the facilities nor the manpower, however, has been available to meet the demand for the continuing education program. As a result AFIT implemented a telephonic educational delivery system to help provide the quantity of education necessary to prevent backlogs. The purpose of this study was to determine 1if the Teleteach Expanded Delivery System TEDS used was as effective educationally as the previous delivery system 2 if the TEDS was an acceptable mode of learning for both students and instructors and 3 if the TEDS was less costly on a per student basis than the previous mode. The authors concluded based on an evaluation of one continuing education course, LOG 220, that 1 TEDS is as effective educationally as the previous system 2 TEDS is more economical on a per student basis than the previous system and 3 TEDS is acceptable to both students and faculty.
