Summary

Since its establishment in 1978, Thailand's Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University (STOU) has attracted world-wide attention for its innovative, multimedia approach to distance education and for its varied assortment of degree and non-degree programs. Four articles by Dr. Wichit Srisa-an, the founding rector of STOU, are presented in this volume: (1) "Higher Education Development in Thailand" sets the establishment of STOU in historical perspective and traces the expansion and consolidation of Thai higher education; (2) "Distance Education through Multi-Media" surveys the strengths and weaknesses of various media and discusses the media mix currently employed by the university; (3) "The Distance Teaching University: The Case of Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University" touches on some of the problems facing the fledgling university and raises several issues vitally important to any distance university, e.g., intended audience, appropriate teaching/learning system, and maintenance of high academic standards; and (4) "The Management and Economics of Distance Education: The Case of Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University" (written jointly with Tong-in Wangsotorn) gives a detailed description of the university, including its administrative and academic structure, course production methods, programs offered, enrollment statistics, and cost effectiveness.
