The concept of distance learning is continually evolving and expanding as new technologies are developed and integrated into the wide spectrum of existing ones. Distance learning technology enhances a student's capacity to engage in learning that he/she selects, at any time, in a variety of modes, and with experts both within and beyond the classroom. It helps learners meet their educational needs by overcoming barriers of distance and time, by providing remote communities with instant access to resources, and by actively engaging learners in the learning process. This book examines the contribution that distance education and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have made and can make. It identifies the conditions that must be addressed in making effective use of distance education methods and ICTs. It will be a highly valuable reference tool for all the concerned.
