Abstract:
In an evolving world, rapid developments and the widespread use of the Internet provide opportunities to new educational media, communication, and interaction. The use of new communication technologies in education has affected the synchronous and asynchronous interaction and provided new opportunities concerning the presentation of educational materials to the students. One of these new opportunities is the Internet supported web based courses.

Abstract:
This paper presents the characteristics of a synchronized organizational model as a means for ensuring success in distance and online education programs in global contexts. Our synchronized model of the organization includes Emotional Competence (E), Technology Competence (T), Knowledge Competence (K) and Environmental Impact (En) as key components for organizational success. The paper focuses on the formulation and implications of this universal synchronised model for ETKE.

Abstract:
Historically, open and distance learning has meant providing access to instructional content in which learners and their instructor (s) are assisted to overcome the communication barriers of location, time, and most recently pace. Due to development in education and the emergence of technological diversity and instructional design, the element of communicating in real time is now a reality.

Abstract:
The expectations are that decentralization and localization of education services will relieve some of the burden on central bureaucracies. This general trend may have profound effects on many facets of the education system, e.g., the actors involved in education decisions; strategies for change; opportunities for localizing curricula; operational meaning given to such concepts as quality, efficiency, and relevance in education; and how education services are financed.

Abstract:
Selecting technology is perhaps the easiest part of developing a distance learning program. As institutions strive to provide quality alternative instructional delivery and enter the increasingly competitive race for new students, two areas often receive little attention - policy development and planning. Clearly, advanced policy deliberation and development is essential to the success of distance learning programs and their students.

The aim of this paper is to help towards the development of national policies for the use of communication technology in education. Its starting point is that the choice of technologies for education is both important and not self-evident. While it does not attempt to answer all the questions, the paper tries to identify some of the more important ones that need to be addressed.

This report is a review of the literature on current developments and prospects in the field of open and distance learning in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). In modern Sub-Saharan African societies, the major agent effecting the process of education has been the traditional education system, the distinguishing features of which are face-to-face interaction between teachers and learners, structured courses of study, fixed locations for learning, fixed time-tables and a system of certification.

Electronic portfolios provide some benefits not available with paper-based portfolios. While standardization for assessment and accountability may be one of these benefits, it may limit opportunities for students to demonstrate creativity in their portfolios. Clear guidelines, on-going instructor support, and a flexible approach to portfolio development allow graduate students in our instructional technology program the opportunity to create portfolios.

Abstract:
Online distance educators and their students are increasingly reliant on the hardware, software and services of internet-based delivery. During the past five years, text-based conferencing methods of online teacher-student communication have been complemented by audio/video-conferencing methods, whiteboard, polling, and instant messaging techniques. It is argued that high-quality distance education requires systematic evaluation of the commercial, freeware, and open-source softwares.

Distance education has been introduced recently in Mongolia and Vietnam, two developing countries in Asia with individual initiatives. However, no evaluation of distance education management, teaching and learning, and technology utilisation has been conducted regarding effectiveness, quality, impact and sustainability. Therefore, it is valuable to conduct an evaluation study for policy recommendations for future development.

Open and Distance Learning (ODL) in Asia and the Pacific (AP) region has many unique features. The most distinctive feature is huge student population in ODL institutions. For example, at least seven ODL institutions in the AP region are mega universities (universities with over 100,000 active students in degree-level courses). AIOU (Pakistan), Anadolu (Turkey), CCRTVU (China), IGNOU (India), KNOU (Korea), STOU(Thailand),UT(Indonesia),and PNU (Iran) have more than 5.6 million active students.

Every year in Nigeria, more than 500,000 adolescents complete secondary education. Roughly, 15% of this number have pre-requisite passes to enter universities, poly-technics, and other tertiary level institutions. Added to the more than 425,000 who fail to attain to the minimal level of success are several others who dropped out of school before completion. The drop out rate from secondary schools in Nigeria ranges from 30-70% depending on which part of the country one focuses upon.

Abstract:
Some hail ‘virtual education’ as a new paradigm, others more cautiously view it as another mode of learning in a continuum of possible approaches. In either case, the issue of quality is at the forefront of debates. Is the quality of virtual education the same as ‘on-campus’ or ‘in-classroom’ learning? Should the quality be the same or different from ‘traditional’ approaches to education? How can the quality of virtual education be assured whenever and wherever it is delivered?

The guidelines are based on recent experience and in particular on a set of eleven case studies, carried out on behalf of UNESCO, which are published separately.

For distance education in particular, ICT policies have even more potential to ensure that it is enjoyed by all who decide to engage in this mode of learning.
