Open Learning: Communicating with the Learner
Özad, Bahire Efe; Barkan, Murat
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v3 n3 Article 6 p43-48 Jul 2004
The present paper defines the key words of "Distance Teaching" (DT), "Distance Education" (DE), and "Open (Distance) Learning" (ODL) to be followed by the exploration of the "Instructional Design" (ID) concept, its principles and process and the operational steps to emphasize on the ever missing issue of the "communication with the learner". Considering the fact that educational needs and requirements are losing their "mass identity" but becoming more individualized, communication with the learner becomes a more dominant fact in discussing the future strategies of education at a distance. The paper concludes with the suggestion that "Open Distance Learning (ODL)" is the way ahead.
