Abstract: The purpose of this study was to develop a conceptual framework for teaching credit courses to adults through radio and to assess the interest of public radio stations in North Carolina in utilizing radio for instruction. The three objectives of the study were (1) to review the literature on the development and the effectiveness of radio courses for adults; (2) to develop a conceptual framework for teaching courses for credit to adults via public radio; and (3) to survey all public radio stations in North Carolina to determine their past, present, and future interest in broadcasting courses for college credit. The review of the literature indicated that even though radio is an accessible medium with the number of public radio stations and their audience size increasing, the medium has not been widely utilized for broadcasting credit courses. The limited research available indicated that radio lessons integrated with appropriately designed print and visual material were an effective instructional medium.
