Factors for Success in Dual Mode Institutions
The objectives of this study are to present an overview of international practice in dual mode universities in 2005, and by analyzing what works well, what doesn’t and why, to develop a Best Practice Framework. We hope that the study and the framework will be useful to single mode institutions, be they face to face or distance mode, that are contemplating a move into dual mode delivery. The study may also inform the discussions of government ministers and policy makers contemplating policy initiatives in dual mode education to meet the ever-increasing demand for university places in a cost-effective manner. Finally we hope that the Best Practice Framework may assist existing dual mode providers to improve the quality of their course offerings by providing a checklist of key considerations in the effective implementation and evaluation of dual mode programmes.
