S. Joseph Levine is Professor Emeritus of Adult Education/Extension Education at Michigan State University. His academic and research background is in the area of adult learning and he enjoys combining that with his long time interest in radio and technology. He has degrees in music education, guidance and counseling, and curriculum research. His strong interest in distance education was initiated in 1966 when he received a grant from the Library of Congress to develop the Recorded Aid for Braille Music – a complete learn-at-home recorded method to assist blind learners in playing a musical instrument. When not designing distance education programs he is usually speaking around the world as an amateur radio operator (W8JRK).
