The University of the Air provides full course of distance education by television and radio broadcasting. It is open to general public as well as to students who aim at receiving Bachelor's degree by completing a course. Among its curricula provided are six classes of astronomical science including history of astronomy. Two of them are of the level for general education and the other four are for students in the course of science major. In addition, a number of special lectures are given. By means of TV we can show various pictures, images and illustrations. I will introduce what are broadcast on TV, and compare their function and roles with those of education using the Internet. They seem complementary my each other. The TV course provides with organized classes though on one-way communication, while the Internet provides with exciting newest results of scientific research and even on interactive communication.
