Intended for use by institutions in developing countries as a source of information for locating available resources on which to draw for training and planning activities in distance education, this directory provides information on the types of instructional materials that are being used by 34 institutions of higher education in Australia, India, Pakistan, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. The information was compiled through the use of proformas sent to a number of institutions in 11 countries. The institutions that responded are listed by country in alphabetical order and the instructional materials are listed together with the appropriate subjects or courses of study. Instructional media most commonly used are printed correspondence, audiocassette tapes, and videocassettes, but some of the programs also use telephone tutorials, study guides, filmstrips, computer managed instruction or videodisc. Information on instructional materials includes the language(s) they are available in; the person to contact for further information; and, in some cases, the prices of materials and suitability of courses for other institutions. The proforma that was used to collect the information is appended. (DJR)
