dc.description.abstract What policy issues need to be addressed when planning and implementing open and distance learning? Policy for Open and Distance Learning considers the questions that planners and policy makers in open and distance learning need to address at any level of education. Starting by analysing the range of purposes for which open and distance learning is used, the book places the issues in context and examines experience in both the public and private sector. As well as discussing in detail new agendas set by new information and communication technologies, the book also covers: Inputs - in terms of learners, staff and resources Processes - organisational structures, technologies, globalisation and governance Outcomes - benefits set in the context of costs The fifteen contributors have examined the varied roles of new technologies as well as low-technology approaches to open and distance learning throughout the world and this book will be invaluable to policy makers in education and those planning or managing open and distance learning programmes. It will also be of interest to students and teachers of education and anyone concerned with comparative education. en_US
