This article describes the planning, implementation, development and evaluation of a funded project that used distance education technologies for technical updating of vocational education teachers in Florida. The project was completed during the summer of 1992. Eight of nine public universities in Florida worked in collaboration on the project. Delivery of 12, two-hour live satellite programs was completed within a four-week period with participation of teachers from throughout Florida. Analysis of responses from participants in the workshops depicts acceptance of the use of distance education technologies for technical updating.
