The Role of Libraries in Web-Based Distance Education: An Account and an Analysis of the Impact of Web Technology on Distance Learning--What Remains Unchanged, What Is Changing
Cooke, Nicole A.
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v1 n4 p47-57 2004
Even though distance education has a long and diverse history, dating back to 1840, in the last ten-to-fifteen years it has been completely transformed by the emergence of Web-based technology. This technology has had an enormous impact on all aspects of distance education (or distance learning as it is increasingly called). In addition to palpable changes in the teaching and learning processes, library and other support services are also being challenged by change. This paper will provide a brief account and analysis of the impact of Web technology on distance education, as well as its impact on the role of library services for distance learners. (Contains 28 notes.)
