Carr, Sarah – Journal of Open, Flexible and Distance Learning, 2021

Shearer, Rick L. – Journal of Open, Flexible and Distance Learning, 2021
All too often in our practice of distance education we overlook the history of the field and our theories as we embrace new technologies or, as in the past year, when we are forced to adapt to a regional or global crisis that necessitates a temporary move to a remote learning scenario. When we set our theories aside, this approach can lead us to…

Higgins, Andrew – Journal of Open, Flexible and Distance Learning, 2020
The premise of this brief opinion piece is that the fundamental paradigm of education appeared with Plato. It is that there is a co-location in time and space of learners, teachers, and resources. The absence of any of these elements can lead to shortcomings in the meaning of the term "to be educated". Recent events such as COVID-19…
