Abstract
In summary, the publication achieves the editors’ purposes. It delineates the state of flexible learning in higher education, circa 2010, within the context of available and emergent digital technologies. The contributions provide a mosaic of government and institutional policy directions and economic pressures that profoundly shaped specific teaching and learning decisions. The sections are logically sequenced and lead to a thoughtful and comprehensive concluding chapter. The case studies are highly readable and at times visceral, while the conceptual chapters anchor the experiences in principles and research-based practices.
