Library and Information Science Distance Education in Thailand in the Next Decade.
This paper discusses library and information science distance education in Thailand. Following an introduction, background information is provided on distance education, including reasons why many countries have found distance education to be a good way to disseminate education (i.e., geographical isolation, social isolation, and disadvantaged groups), and changes in technology. World Wide Web-based instruction (WBI) is covered in the next section, including the Web as a source of information, as electronic book, as teacher, and as a communication medium between teacher and students. Principles to be taken into account in designing effective WBI are also summarized, including motivating the learner, identifying what is to be learned, reminding learners of past knowledge, requiring active involvement, providing guidance and feedback, testing, and providing enrichment and remediation. The next section addresses interaction needs in distance education. The instructional systems design (ISD) model is described in the fifth section, including the analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation phases. The sixth section discusses library and information science distance education, and the seventh section provides an overview of programs in Thailand at Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University, Ramkamhaeng University, and Suraneree University of Technology.
