The twentieth century has seen the creation and evolution of technologies beyond imagination a century ago. The computer has enabled the digital presentation of knowledge, and increased the speed with which information can be captured and processed. Communication technologies have made possible the storage, transfer and sharing of information across vast distances and different time zones.

The acceptance of these technologies has led to a new alternative for providing education and training--distance learning. This book focuses on the processes, techniques and tools that are being used to successfully plan, implement and operate distance learning projects. Both professionals and educators who must enter this challenging teaching and training environment in the new millennium will benefit from Evaluation and Implementation of Distance Learning: Technologies, Tools and Techniques.
