Student's Guide to Distance Education in South Africa, 1998. Third Edition.
Craemer, Helmien, Ed.; Verster, Annetjie, Ed.
This guide offers students an overview of most of the reputable distance-education courses in South Africa. The introduction outlines guidelines for choosing higher education and vocational training courses: features and forms of distance education; how to select the right course; how to choose between different education providers (private colleges, technical colleges, colleges of education, technikons, and universities); coping with the demands of distance education; and judging institutional and course quality (credibility, objectives, study materials, self-assessment, and support for learners). The main part of the directory consists of program listings by 157 broad subject areas. Under each subject, institutions are listed in alphabetical order with degree/diploma granted, duration of the program, entry qualifications, and a brief note about the program. Fields of study are indexed by specific subjects and by granting institutions. Mailing addresses and telephone and fax numbers of the institutions are also given. (SAS)
