New Technology in Open Learning. SCET Open Learning Paper: 403.
This paper examines various uses of new technologies in open learning, including methods of electronic delivery and computer assisted and managed learning, and contrasts their specific applications in the areas of administration, delivery of materials, production of materials, student support, and presentation of the materials. New technologies for student support are discussed, including videotex and telesoftware, which enables a user to download either text files or computer programs from a central computer to a remote learner. Characteristics of new technology are examined as they relate to the requirements of open learning materials, which should be individualized, self-pacing, and interactive. A summary list of benefits and constraints related to the use of new technologies in open learning is provided. (LMM)
