Knowledge, Learning, Community
Looks at some of the "delicate" issues surrounding distance learning, accreditation and self-regulation. Raises some familiar issues, such as the problem of fraud in federal funding for distance programs, the reliability of accreditation for quality control in distance learning, and the question of whether wider government controls are needed. The best reading is in the appendices, where the authors tackle the issue of what constitutes quality in distance learning. HTML page linking to a PDF file.
