General Operational Review of Distance Education

Front Cover
World Bank, 1987 - Distance education - 30 pages
This study reviews Bank experience in FY63-FY85 with 32 investments in distance education projects. Distance education is an educational delivery system that uses a variety of media and a system of feedback to provide education to people who are unable to attend traditional schools. Lessons learned indicate that investments in distance are most effective when there is agreement between the Bank and the Borrower on the educational objectives of the distance education component. Distance education has been used to advantage when (a) it is sharply focused on improving the quality of teaching available; (b) it is used to teach nonformal "equivalency" education to students otherwise without teachers or classrooms; and (c) it is used to meet social demands and answer urgent needs for formation of human capital.
