The article presents a study which explores the effect of the use of television by educators at the State University of Iowa to improve the academic achievement of the students. A closed circuit television was used in decentralizing a large, lecture-size class into small discussion groups with an electronic pipeline to the instructor. In the study, the experimental group includes a 90-student class on American Government. The result of this study will be compared with the educational setting by the same instructor, James Murray, but without the use of a television.
