Education and Training Catalogue, UK

Aston Media, part of the University of Aston in Birmingham, UK is currently using Telewest’s digital cable interactive services to enable subscribers to access a catalogue of learning courses supplied by colleges and universities in the West Midlands area. These courses have been put together under the brand of “etc” - education and training channel. This is an extension of Aston University’s distance-learning programme that has been operating since the 1980’s, where lectures have been recorded on video-tape and sent out to students by post.

Eventually, it is planned to make the videos available on-demand and include interactivity when both of these facilities are available through Telewest’s digital TV cable service.
