is sponsored by Phare.
The project "DEMAND: DEsign,
implementation and MANagement of telematics based Distance education (an
on-line course)" aims at developing a meta-level course for educational
managers and practitioners at higher and further education level in order
to be able to design and implement distance education courses using telematics.
DEMAND itself will be implemented on the World Wide Web and will be delivered
basically via the Internet. In settings for which this delivery option
is not appropriate, an off-line version of the course will be offered.
The main goal of the DEMAND
project is to facilitate the transition from traditional distance education
to telematics based distance education by fully exploiting the already
existing technological infrastructure in distance education centres and
higher education institutions. To achieve this, DEMAND focuses on preparation
of specialists, who are able to set up distance education programs and
design, develop and deliver distance education courses using the Internet.
