CDE seminar conducted by Dr Endrit Kromidha (Teaching Fellow in Technology Information Management and Strategy / International Business, School of Management, Royal Holloway University of London)
Many achievements in technology and information systems have made possible the improvement of public services. However, in many countries, education remains behind some other sectors, regardless of its purpose towards future generations or the resources spent therein. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the opportunities and policy challenges of distance learning in a developing region’s context. The discussion will start with a general overview of new democracies and countries in the Western Balkans. Secondly, this study intends to analyse how online distance learning has evolved and can guide educational policy for higher access and development. Finally, the presentation intends to open a discussion on the policy challenges and their implementation in practice. The research is based on specific numbers and figures taken from reports on Western Balkan countries.
Alongside the regional perspective, this seminar is aimed at anyone with an interest in the developing context for how information and communication technologies can have a positive impact, and how online distance learning can be related to policies for development.
