Planning and Implementing Open and Distance Learning Systems: A Handbook for Decision Makers
This handbook has been written for heads of educational institutions, their senior staff and senior staff of ministries of education who are interested in initiating or extending ODL provision. // The handbook seeks to help you (alone or with your colleagues, depending on circumstances) to make strategic policy decisions about ODL provision, enabling you to answer questions such as: • How can we use ODL to provide better access to education? • How can we use ODL to provide more education for the same unit of resource? • Who will be our students? • Should we set up a new institution or expand an existing one? • What type of learning materials will we need? • Who will tutor and support the students? • What will it cost? It is important to note that this is not a handbook for course writers or a handbook for tutors – other handbooks in this series
