An Ongoing Experiment in ODL Using New Technologies.
Papaspyrou, Nikolaos; Koutoumanos, Anastasios; Maurer, Hermann; Skordalakis, Emmanuel
This paper describes the ongoing project EONT--Experiment in Open and Distance Learning using New Technologies. The main objective of the project is to examine whether ODL using new technologies is effective. EONT will achieve its goals through experimentation, using an ODL environment based on some of the available new technologies (i.e., computer networks and networked hypermedia systems), one subject matter area, and real learners. Two distance learning universities and five conventional universities from seven European countries will take part in the project. Topics discussed include: (1) the SOCRATES Programme, the European Community action program for cooperation in the field of education; (2) objectives of the EONT project and features and uses of the EONT learning environment; and (3) the implementation approach, including courseware development. Figures present a schematic view of the EONT learning environment, components of the learning environment, methodology components for courseware development, the courseware development model, and a table of courses to be offered. A table showing the structure of the EONT consortium is appended. (Author/DLS)
