The Drum Beat 561 - Distance Education
October 4, 2010
source: http://www.comminit.com/en/drum_beat_561.html

Distance education seems to me to be a promising tool that can support the conversion of the "information society" to a widespread "knowledge society", and, in fact, to a knowledge society without geographic limits: local to international education possibilities, limited at this point in time only by language and by the pace of the spread of technology. Technologies supporting learning include radio, television, mobile phone, and computer. Whether through an exclusively virtual classroom or individual tutorial, or a technology-supported educational setting that includes "face" time with instructors, the field is expanding at all age levels and in both traditional education and training settings.

This issue # 561 of The Drum Beat features examples of distance education enabling knowledge acquisition and the sharing of the kind of opportunities envisioned by Abdul Waheed Khan, UNESCO's Assistant Director-General for Communication and Information, in Technology Alone Will Not Bridge Knowledge Divides when he states: "Knowledge societies should not be shaped and driven by technological forces but by societal choices... [p]olitical and social environments have to be developed that enable knowledge creation, preservation, acquisition, and sharing."

Below you will find projects, tools, and evaluations of distance education. If you have knowledge of a distance learning project that might be added to The CI archive, please send it to drumbeat@comminit.com
