Dual-Mode Universities in Higher Education: Way Station or Final Destination?
With online learning it became much easier for academic staff to produce versions of their campus courses for distance students and to interact with them by e-mail and other web tools. This promise of a direct relationship between distant student and teacher, by-passing all the intermediate processes of traditional distance education (design and printing of documents, recording of audio-visual programmes, etc.), was hailed as a major step forward. Some observers, thinking that classroom teaching and distance learning were now so well integrated that institutions had best of both worlds, forecast the gradual disappearance of single-mode open universities. // Daniel, J.
