Providing access to basic literacy education with educational TV

To introduce literacy concepts to wider audiences, the authors developed a TV programme "Bizim Sınıf" (Our Classroom) in collaboration with a private broadcast company whose TV channel is viewed all across Turkey. The goal of the paper is to (a) describe this TV programme in detail, (b) report the evaluation data and (c) discuss the implications for this type of distance education for other regions around the world to increase access to education.
