dc.description.abstractEducation and training opportunities provided through distance and open learning are one of the few educational areas in which women in the developing world are well represented. Open and distance learning helps to overcome some of the challenges that women and girls face when the only other opportunities for education are provided through conventional means. However with the increased use of the new information and communications technologies (ICTs) to deliver open and distance learning, it is feared that this trend may be reversed and women may become marginalised due to issues relating to the access to, and their confidence and ability to use these new technologies.en_US
