It has become an intrinsic part of many national educational systems and an academic discipline in its own right. Research into the area has produced a body of theory which is now being used to improve its practice. This new edition of Theory and Practice of Distance Education has been thoroughly updated both by describing how practice has changed, and by examining recent research in the field.

It describes the place of distance education in educational thinking, its various theories, principles, and techniques of presentation, its organization and its administration.
