The site Distance Learning in Developing Countries is intended for anyone who is involved or interested in distance learning or distance education in developing countries. It should be useful to students interested in learning by distance, to teachers interested in teaching by distance, or to people interested in research on distance education in developing countries.
The website seeks to show how new ICTs - open educational resources, open source, Web 2.0, blogs, wikis, social networking, social bookmarking and other social software - can be used for distance education through online teaching and learning (e-learning).
The site is divided into three main user-sections:
- For students wanting to obtain online/distance training and education;
- For teachers wanting to obtain teaching ideas and resources for online and distance teaching;
- For researchers wanting research ideas and resources for distance education in developing countries.
