The Evolution of Distance Education in Australia: Past, Present, Future
Reiach, Stephen; Averbeck, Clemens; Cassidy, Virginie
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v13 n4 p247-252 2012
Australia's large size and scattered population made it a prime location for the development of correspondence education in the 1920s, and the country is still in the forefront of distance education. This article is based on an extensive interview with Terry Evans, professor at Deakin University in Australia, who reflects on the history of distance education, its current situation, and also shares his thoughts about the future of distance education in the 21st century.
