Effects of IT on Distance Learning and S

By Jule ·
Hello

I?m interested in the impact information technology has on distance learning in further education and training.

How has it affected society ? lack of human interaction, for example.

If you have completed or in the process of completing a distance learning course ?what?s your opinion of the whole concept and process and how has it affected you?

Can you suggest where I could find articles, journals, data on the effects IT has on society in respect of distance learning.

Thanks and regards

Effects of IT on Distance Learning and S

I've completed several courses at www.zdu.com and overall it's a positive experience. The only interaction lacking is face-to-face interaction. I held several discussions with my classmates during the course of the classes and interacted with them almost daily.

For me, it's a matter of convenience. I could participate on my schedule instead of the teacher's. Given my work schedule, that's a real bonus.

Thanks. How does the schedule work - if you have the opportunity to manage your own time and space?
