500 Tips for Open and Flexible Learning
With diminishing resources combined with greater numbers of students in higher and further education, hard-pressed teaching staff are increasingly turning to open and flexible learning to deliver selected parts of the curriculum. Desktop publishing allows rapid production of open learning materials but there is nothing that provides practical, immediate and accessible help to the wide range of people involved in designing, supporting and delivering open learning. This book aims to fill that gap and will help people involved in designing, supporting and delivering open learning.
