In a world undergoing social and technological changes, the growing interest in e-learning is emerging from several directions. These include organisations that have traditionally offered distance education programmes either in a single, dual or mixed mode setting. These institutions have visualised the inclusion of e-learning in their reportoire as a logical extension of their distance education activities. Presently, e-learning is of interest to many distance education organisations and they see it as a way of improving access to their programmes. This volume discusses the various issues related to inproving access and offers plausible
solutions, which would help distance education institutions to think about adopting interactive mechanisms in different learning environments.
