Delivering open learning through a technological network
AbstractOpen learning has the potential to offer a student access to education never before available in Australia. While the packaged product is extremely important its impact, regardless of quality, flexibility and inventiveness, will be seriously diminished if the appropriate delivery support mechanisms are not in place. Open Learning centres, as an immediate step, could offer great scope for delivery, especially where they are supported by terrestrial and satellite based technologies. This paper identifies 301 potential OLCs nationally and briefly introduces possible technologies that could be used to support education and training delivery.
