Historical Note

The University of Maine System developed distance education methods based on interactive technologies to bring higher education to communities across Maine. The network of campus sites was known as the “Education Network of Maine,” and was linked by an interactive television system housed on the campus of the University of Maine at Augusta. During the period of 1990 to the early 2000s, a fiber optic spine connected seven University campuses with two way audio and video transmission. Programming was distributed by ITFS microwave to over 85 locations throughout Maine.

Scope and Content Note

This collection includes materials related to planning and activities of the Educational Network of Maine from 1991 to 2001.  Background notes and documents related to the production of several videos as a part of the distance education program for the University of Maine System and its ITV (Instructional Television) program. Notes provide information about a teleconference titled, “Educating Amy,” a filming of the Maine Volunteers for Justice, and videos created for training of Animal Control Officers in Maine. Master videorecordings are included in beta format.
