Distance Learning
The Essential Guide



October 1998 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

The landscape for higher education is changing rapidly and distance learning is a key element in this upheaval. In this practical and timely volume, authors Marcia L. Williams, Kenneth Paprock and Barbara Covington provide clear commentary on the basic issues surrounding distance learning. Distance Learning answers some of the key questions at the heart of new educational technologies: What are the options available to institutions considering the addition of distance learning to their programs? What is the most practical way to integrate new technologies with existing equipment? For teachers, what is the best way to minimize the loss of content and foster a positive learning environment without face-to-face contact? An ideal introduction to the world of new educational technologies, the guide is filled with case studies and built on an intuitive set of "How do I . . . ?" questions. Providing a strong foundation for teachers who need to teach from a distance, it will be an invaluable sourcebook for teachers who need to know more about open and distance learning across any academic discipline.
