Overview

This guide to the selection and use of modern technologies for flexible open learning argues that technology is not inherently good or bad for teaching--it is how it is used that matters. Applying a framework to print, radio and telephone teaching as well as

computer-based learning and multimedia, Bates analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of new technologies.
