Abstract

My topic today is ‘Developments in Distance Education and elearning: can they address emerging challenges?’, which I have prepared jointly with my colleague Dr K Balasubramanian. I will first look at the context of higher education globally and in the Caribbean region. I will then review the response to these needs-- developments in distance education and elearning, which include the emergence of OER and MOOCs. In conclusion, I will raise questions relating to whether the developments in distance education and elearning are addressing emerging challenges.
