Moller, Morten, Ed.; Shaughnessy, Haydn, Ed.
This report is based on contributions to two workshops arranged jointly by Task Force Human Resources and the DELTA (Developing European Learning through Technological Advance) Unit. The purpose of collecting these papers was to provide an overview of the implications of the DELTA Exploratory Action outcomes for future research. After the preface by Roland Huber and an introduction by Morten Moller, the following papers are presented: (1) "Community Policy in Distance Training and Education" (Hywel C. Jones); (2) "Telematic Services for Education in the Context of the New Framework Programme for Research and Development" (Joan Majo); (3) "Community Actions and Priorities in Open and Distance Education and Training--Distance Learning Initiatives" (R. Charters d'Azavedo); (4)"Rationale for a Telematic Infrastructure for Distance and Flexible Learning (Electronic Universities)" (Luis Rosello); (5) "Towards the European Electronic University" (Rhys Gwyn); (6) "Developing Acceptance--How Can Integrated Systems Be Used for Industry-Oriented Distance Education and Training?" (Soren Nipper); (7) "Course Delivery and Student Support Systems for Distance Teaching and Training" (F. H. D. Gastkemper); (8) "Introduction to JANUS" (Paul Bacsich); (9) "DEDICATED--Development of a New Dimension in European Computer-Aided Teaching and Education" (J. Encarnacao, M. Gunther, Ch. Hornung, A. Knierriem. and H. Kuhlmann); (10) "Overview of the Camce Communication System: A Potential Communication Framework Supporting Multimedia Courseware Development Process in a Distributed Environment" (Marco Carosi and Francesco Feliciani); (11) "The Need for Large Scale Experiments in Flexible Learning" (Pierre Landry); (12) "Remote Training Services: A Medium-Term View" (Richard Walker); and (13) "Evaluation and Assessment Strategies for Pilot Experiments" (Chris Curran and Ann Wickham).
