STUDY OF VIRTUAL EDUCATION, MAPS EMERGING MODELS AND TRENDS - The Commonwealth of Learning has released a landmark study which provides a "snapshot" of online education worldwide in the summer of 1999. "The Development of Virtual Education: A Global Perspective," presents a detailed analysis of current practices and trends in each of ten geographic regions, including Africa and other regions about which little has been known. The study was carried out by an international team of experts led by Canadian educator Dr. Glenn Farrell, with funding from the British government's Department for International Development. Excellent summary sections on worldwide trends and emerging models are included, along with a set of recommendations for distance education leaders.
