📒Strategies For Sustainable Open And Distance Learning ✍ Andrea Hope
✏Strategies for Sustainable Open and Distance Learning Book Summary : Adaptability and the ability to handle rapid and ongoing change are essential for successfully managing any modern educational enterprise, and open and distance learning is no exception. In an often over-looked field, this volume examines the nature of sustainability in open and distance learning using case material from a wide range of current educational contexts worldwide. The books themes include: reflection and analysis of the management of change collaboration staff development quality assurance and funding in an increasingly globalized environment. This book also reassesses the core processes involved in course development, delivery, and student support, in a world that is both linked and divided by access to the latest technologies.

However, through consistent attention and commitment to meeting the needs of learners, sustainability can be achieved.
📒Assessing Open And Distance Learners ✍ Chris Morgan
✏Assessing Open and Distance Learners Book Summary : Most works on assessment assume a face-to-face teaching context. The few that don't, assume that assessment issues are largely generic and equally applicable in face-to-face, open or distance contexts. Unfortunately, reality is far removed from this generalized viewpoint and, as the authors of this book point out, once assessment is considered from the open or distance learner's perspective it becomes very apparent that new approaches to assessment have to be developed. Written by practitioners in ODL for other practitioners, this is neither a book that preaches nor one that takes the abstract high ground. Offering concrete advice and evidence, it will help readers both to reflect upon their personal approaches to assessment and to adapt their techniques in order to benefit learners.
📒Opening Education ✍ Terry Evans
✏Opening Education Book Summary : We live in a society with ever-changing needs and expectations. Education practitioners and policy makers need therefore to face the challenges of new economic, social and technological conditions in their work. There is a global concern to develop forms of education and training which are open to the demands of needs of learners, and which are accessible at times and places suitable to those learners. Governments, institutions and practitioners are developing and implementing policies which reflect these trends. The overall theme of this book is the relationship between government and organizational policies and the work of practitioners in open and distance learning. The book does this by exploring a selection of international examples. The authors, many of them recognized experts, write from a wide range of international and organizational perspectives. Each one draws on significant experience within his or her field. Terry Evans is Head of the Graduate School of Education at Deakin University. He was the foundation director of the Master of Distance Education course there and has extensive experience teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students. Daryl Nation is Deputy Head of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Monash University. He is Associate Professor in the School and divides his time between policy development, research and teaching.

📒Planning And Management In Distance Education ✍ Santosh Panda
✏Planning and Management in Distance Education Book Summary : Online distance education and training is being adopted throughout the world as a cost-effective, flexible answer to widening access for all. This enthusiasm has led to many initiatives and policies from governments to encourage online learning at international, national, regional and institutional levels. Also, changes in distance learning continue to take place as a result of educational discourse and innovations in ICT. Distance learning courses are therefore under pressure to reform, and successful management of external policy planning and internal change management is key to the implementation and maintenance of reforms. World-class leaders, researchers and practitioners share their experiences, research and critical reflection in this book, providing guidance on how to balance quality management with quality learning. Subjects covered include policy and planning, institutional management, management of processes, quality assurance and accreditation, and internationalization. This book will aid anyone involved in running or wanting to implement distance education to effectively manage an online learning programme.
✏Open and Distance Learning in Secondary School Education in India Book Summary : This book examines the state of the Open and Distance Learning (ODL)-based secondary education in India. ODL-based education has been a key resource for children in India who can neither cope with nor avail of regular schooling opportunities due to economic, health and disability, or other constraints. The volume uses large-scale empirical data collected from various Indian states and a sensitive theoretical framework to study the equity, efficiency, and effectiveness of the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) and the State Open School (SOS). Highlighting the roadblocks and barriers in terms of its reach, inclusion, and delivery, particularly to the marginalised, this book explores whether ODL has a potential of being a sustainable and effective option at the secondary and senior secondary level in India. Thus, it seeks to generate policy discourse around delivery mechanisms and effectiveness of ODL in developing countries. First of its kind, this comprehensive volume will be useful for scholars and researchers of education, education policy, public policy, and political studies.
