Abstract:
Much commercial software for DE is inappropriate to the needs of Asian educational institutions due to high cost, insufficient flexibility in terms of customization, and its non-availability in the local languages. Many open-source software (OSS) platforms are also inappropriate for DE institutions in the region because they require intensive customization to meet specific needs. The institutions often lack the capacity for this work, and the necessary documentation in the local languages.
