Advances in Distance Learning.
This document contains three symposium papers on advances in distance learning. "The Adoption of Computer Technology and Telecommunications: A Case Study" (Larry M. Dooley, Teri Metcalf, Ann Martinez) reports on a study of the possible applications of two theoretical models (Rogers' Diffusion of Innovations model and the Concerns-Based Adoption Model of Hall, Wallace, and Dossett) in helping distance learning staff learn to use technology effectively. "Distance Education: Examining Emerging Standards and Instructional Practice via Videotaped Content Analysis" (Carmeta Tate-Blake, Jo D. Gallagher, Douglas H. Smith) presents the results of a study that revealed that few of the emerging practices suggested by proponents of distance learning and distance educators were currently being practiced. "Critical Components of Distance Education Partnerships between Two-Year Colleges and Business and Industry" (Edward "Ted" Raspiller) is the report of a multiple-case study that was undertaken to do the following: (1) to identify critical characteristics of program planning, funding, evaluation, and policy development in distance education partnerships, and (2) to create the framework for a program development model for planning and refining distance education training programs.
