The state of distance-learning worldwide : the first report on the index of institutions involved in distance-learning by Walter Perry( Book )

5 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A survey of distance-learning institutions in 88 countries was conducted in 1983 to discover whether a network of such institutions existed that would allow the international sharing of educational programs under the sponsorship of the United Nations University (unu). Findings are based on responses from 304 institutions (33%), cover 468 different programs, and are categorized by geographical region as follows: Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe (East), Europe (West), Middle East, North America, and South and Central America. Data tables show how institutions were founded; the distribution of numbers of students by size of institution; the level of programs and subjects offered; methods of transmission such as correspondence, telephone, and regional services; languages used; and fees charged. Four examples of distance learning institutions include short descriptions of programs in Thailand, Spain, Australia, and Pakistan. Appendices contain the survey questionnaire, a list of the countries receiving and responding to the questionnaire, additional data from replies received after the study cut-off date, and a response from a network user. Fifteen tables display study data. This study was conducted as a preliminary to consideration of the use of distance-learning in the development of UNU's new program, Global Learning. (Lmm)

Teaching and learning at a distance : the experience of Britain's Open University by Walter Perry( Book )

5 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a speech on the development of formalized systems for distance education, the British Open University is highlighted. Three themes are addressed: (1) objectives, methods, and evaluation of Great Britain's Open University, (2) examination and comparison of similar institutions in other countries, and (3) development of guidelines for initiation of similar institutions. The communications explosion has led to a worldwide trend toward participative democracy. First prompted by politicians and then by government, the Open University was designed to give excluded students a second chance at higher education. Access was to be easy, but there would be no compromise on materials or academic standards. There would be no qualifications, costs would be reasonable, and education would be taken to students. Radio and television would serve as adjuncts. Since 1971, over 120,000 have been admitted, with course success rate being about 70-75%. The university has largely achieved its objectives, and the British academic world has accepted the degree in standard. Success has led to world interest in the distance learning concept, though foreign countries address differently their needs, populations, and financing. One shared concept is that it is possible and practical to educate through nontraditional modes. It can be concluded that, among other things, courses must be specifically designed for the target population, and one should make use of available mass communication systems. (Css)
