Distance Education in the Context of Globalization: A Francophone Perspective
Tremblay, Gaetan
American Journal of Distance Education, v25 n1 p21-32 2011
This article aims to analyze authors' contributions published in "Distances et Savoirs" ("D & S") on the topic of distance education in the context of globalization. It offers an inventory of questions, problems, and issues the authors have selected; a description of the way they have studied them; and a synthesis of conclusions they have reached. It also pinpoints what they have ignored, silenced, or left in the shadows. The corpus includes twenty-four papers. After a short reflection on the background set up by the globalization process, the outcomes presentation is structured by distributing the different objects into three categories: the international regulation of distance education, the e-learning experiments, and information and communication technologies (ICT) for development. A few comments highlight valuable contributions, as well as a few omissions, in the researchers' works published in "D & S". (Contains 2 notes.)
