Michael Gallagher; James Lamb – Distance Education, 2023
University systems maintain prohibitive closures that constitute a closed-loop system: opaque academic practices, control of what counts as knowledge, financial and social exclusion, and the perpetuation of privilege. Yet this closed-loop system is also governed by adherence to values around education as a public good, openness, and authenticity,…

Veletsianos, George – Distance Education, 2020
Prior literature suggests that to address the problems facing education, researchers and practitioners of online and flexible learning should avoid placing too much emphasis on the potential of technology and consult the history and literature of the field. In this reflective article, I argue that in addition to these activities, we should expand…

Firstly, it identifies three types of convergence of distance and campus-based education--dual mode, add-on/blended, and full convergence--arguing that the last type has yet to be fully realized due to the complexities involved. It then critiques the…

Highly skilled manpower is critical for sustainable socio-economic development. However, participation in higher education in Africa continues to be the lowest in the world.

This commentary calls for…

Xiao, Junhong – Distance Education, 2017
Interaction is a recurrent theme in the literature on distance education. Much of the research along these lines is dedicated to reciprocal interpersonal interaction, that is, learner-learner and learner-instructor interaction. But there is far less research interest in learner-content interaction despite its fundamental and critical role in…
