Abstract

Therefore, I will refrain from tiring you with details of what you already know and attempt to discuss with you a few specific challenges that confront educational planners, policy makers and practitioners as they aspire to move away from high cost, elite, institution-centred provision to one where the focus is very much student centred, affordable and mass in nature. In doing so, one invariably must consider the practice of distance education as an important option in any attempt at coupling mass education and low cost (this may or may not be so but at least that is the perception) in most parts of the developing Commonwealth.
