Abstract

Represents over 80 citations published within the past two decades on the study of distance education in the Caribbean and Latin America. It also highlights a wide divergence of views and dilemmas on the subject expressed at international meetings, conferences and workshops. The experiences of local practitioners working in the field are also well reflected. Aim is to promote a greater awareness of distance education as a powerful medium for expanding educational horizons, and encouraging further study and research in this region.
