The Gospel of Media at Brigham Young U. (Educational Technology Profile 15)

This is the 15th in a series of profiles documenting experiences with the use of instructional technology at two dozen colleges and universities. A look at what they have learned may benefit others considering new ways to teach. This report describes why and how the use of multimedia has become intrinsic to the educational process at Brigham Young University. Because this institution is large and well to do, the magnitude of its budget for learning resources is extraordinary, and its instructional technology operations are so sophisticated, some readers may suppose that it is hardly a model for them to consider. But just as the corner grocery store can learn techniques from the supermarket, smaller and poorer institutions can learn from the BYU story.
