PROCEEDINGS

NARUC Biennial Regulatory Information Conference,

Abstract

This paper is concerned with the recent developments in federal and state legislation regarding cable franchises and their effect on the establishment of a statewide distance learning network. It begins with an overview of recent legislation regarding cable regulations and presents issues regarding distance education. These include linking cable franchises with new trunking cable, allowing single signals to be received by single towns; remote educational protocols; and developing educational programming agreements. Regulatory enhancements and their effects on educational programming are examined. Video dial tone trials which allow video programming over traditional copper lines are introduced. Remote educational protocols for distance networks are discussed. Federal initiatives have given money and legislation to be used in developing regional educational networks. The changes that advances in technology have made in distance education are examined. Finally, the implications of these new developments for Connecticut are identified. (JLB)
