Can Distance Education Be Mainstreamed?
Irele, Modupe E.
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, v8 n2 Sum 2005
The term "mainstreaming" is often used to capture distance education's re-positioning within traditional universities. However, the results of a study of written distance education policies in four land grant universities challenge the implied widespread acceptance and integration of distance education into the educational mainstream. Furthermore, the results reveal major issues that compromise distance education's capacity to be mainstreamed into all relevant areas of the university system.
