The most recent issue of The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning
The most recent issue of The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning (IRRODL) is now online.
"Hybridization of Higher Education: Cross National Perspectives"
the efforts of conventional campus teaching universities in 13 countries
to become "dual mode" distance teaching universities is the
theme of latest issue of IRRODL.
In this "mega-issue," eight national case studies review the history
of hybridization efforts of universities to extend higher education opportunities
beyond campus based classrooms in Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, Israel, Norway,
Taiwan and the UK. Six institutional case studies describe the experience of
specific institutions in Australia, Colombia, Spain, Ukraine, and the USA.
Besides the blind peer-reviewed main section, regular features of IRRODL include
Book Notes, Field Notes Conference Notes, and Technical Notes, featuring evaluations
of online educational software.
