The Use of Distance Learning in Non-Formal Education: a report on a survey carried out for the Commonwealth of Learning by the International Extension College
The report documents information on 73 projects, in 56 developing countries and 17 industrialised countries, and presents a number of conclusions and proposals for further action. The survey found that there is considerable activity in non-formal distance education but that it is not well documented. It notes that non-formal distance education projects are often poorly funded, which often leads to low quality, disappointing results, and lack of sustainability
