Summary

The print-based model of distance education through correspondence continues to be used, but is being supplemented and, in some cases, replaced, by other media. A second generation of distance education in the 1960s and 1970s was characterized by reliance on open broadcasting, supported by correspondence instruction and print materials. A third generation has been characterized by teleconferencing systems, and society is now entering a fourth phase of development of distance education based on the integrated use of new developments in telecommunications and computing, characterized by the integrated use of remote study materials supported by computer-based multimedia teleconferencing. New technologies are ensuring that it will be possible to adapt to telecommunications-based communication easily and at acceptable cost. Research suggests that these new technologies are capable of delivering effective instruction. One potential benefit of the integrated networks is that they may be user-driven, with groups of students forming because of common interests and with instruction responding rapidly to the demands of society.
