0 Reviews
The mega-universities base their success on distance education. Many campus universities are now adopting distance education for some of their activities. Sir John Daniel discusses the changing role of distance education within the wider enterprise of education and training and how to gain a competitive advantage. Technology plays a major role in contributing to the changes and the delivery of distance learning and the central question of the book is how the knowledge media can contribute to the renewal of universities, particularly through further development of distance education.
