Description - Distance Education by Keith Harry
The wonders of technology have brought to the world the benefits of education at a distance. But the best research and analysis of distance education is notoriously difficult to track down. Distance Education: New Perspectives chronicles the final chapter to date of the major writing in this fast moving field. Bringing together into one volume the best writings of the leading authorities in distance education from the late 1980s and the early 1990s, the book may be seen as a companion volume to the much-cited Distance Education: International Perspectives (Routledge 1983). A number of the best authorities from outside the English-speaking world are translated and appear in English for the first time. Distance Education: New Perspectives offers a comprehensive survey of the field from the theory behind this special mode of teaching and learning to international case studies of distance education in practice. The book considers the introduction of electronic communication technologies to distance education, including one and two-way video virtual classrooms.
The final section treats for the first time in the literature the growing number of professioanl degrees and awards in the field of distance education from universities around the world.
