  3. 3. unit 2 Introduction to Flexible, Distance and Online Learning Rationale: This second unit explores some of the drivers behind flexible, distance and online learning. The 21st century has seen a change in student demographic. The student body is increasingly diverse, for example, many students are older learners who may have work and family schedules as well as study commitments, attending traditional face-to-face classes in a college or university may not always be possible. Ubiquitous networked computer technology, the growth of the Internet and the widely use of personalise technologies as well as social media provide multiple- platforms for cooperation and co-learning has given increased opportunity to both students and educators, in a time of increasing uncertainty in the educational landscape. Participants will be encouraged to explore some of the drivers behind these changes from a personal, institutional and international perspective and challenged to explore a variety of learning and teaching approaches that support aspects of FDOL.
