Information Science Reference, May 31, 2011 - Education - 408 pages
The Internet has become one of the most important and most used media for communication and learning, as it allows for the creation of interactive and collaborative environments, whose contents and resources can be shared with a limitless number of users. The explosion of the Internet in the past decade has changed the way many students live and learn, in part because modern technology has made it possible for learners to access information or research any topic of interest from anywhere in the world.
Distance Education Environments and Emerging Software Systems: New Technologies focuses on the discussions of computational methods, algorithms implemented prototype systems, and applications of open and distance learning. This reference is a primary forum for researchers and practitioners to disseminate practical solutions to the automation of open and distance learning.
