Abstract

In this book, so far, we have covered five major sections: Foundations of Instruction and Learning at a Distance, Adult Learning Theory, Systematic Instructional Design, Technology Knowledge and Skills, and Administrative Issues. We based the chapters in these sections on seminal and current research, as well as practical applications in higher education and human resource development. The final chapter of this book explores future trends and directions in the field of distance education. We know that technology continues to increase in power while decreasing in cost, so it is clear that the technological capabilities will change. But will adult learning theory and instructional design principles also change? We stressed that these fundamental principles will remain constant and serve as the foundation for effective instruction and learning, but who knows what the future holds? What major changes will occur in the field of distance education 10, 20, or even 50 years from now?
