Open Access

Our classic title, Distance Leaners in Higher Education, is now available as Open Access. It is the book that informed much of current practice in distance teaching and learning.

And, how has a title stayed so current for so long? Perhaps, it is because it focuses not on the phenominal technology that proliferates so rapidly, but on the human dimension of the teaching/learning process.

Educators continue to weigh the technology in relation to good teaching practices. This book paved the way for that continuing conversation.

For more on the book and to access it, go to our Distance Learners in Higher Education page.
