A book from 1961, New Perspectives in University Correspondence Study (Chicago: Center for the Study of Liberal Education for Adults), lists the “characteristics that a correspondence student needs”:
- organization skills
and “the characteristics necessary for a good program in correspondence study”:
- clear goals and objectives
- manageably sized lessons
- rapid feedback from a skilled teacher
That’s it then. Nothing has changed. Not sure why people are getting degrees in this stuff, really.
