Summary:
"As the global commitment to educational access has become enshrined in all levels of society, new technologies have also been developed that hold tremendous promise for enabling these goals. This new reality provides vastly expanded possibilities for international collaboration, knowledge building, sharing of best practices, and new ways to teach, both within the classroom and without. However, even as new modes of providing education proliferate, the digital divide still continues to grow, making technology solutions for expanding access a continuing issue of debate. This book looks at trends and challenges for expanding access to post-secondary education via technology through a set of case studies and analyses written by people involved in relevant projects around the world"-- Provided by publisher.
