ABOUT

The rapid changes in the world economy, technology, and digital society have transformed people's traditional ways of life at local, national and global levels. In this digital world, the changing demands of knowledge and skills acquisition continue to challenge formal education systems and call for alternative modes of learning.

With the development of the Internet and multimedia technologies, distance learning is becoming  a well-accepted and indispensable part of educational systems worldwide and there is greater awareness that Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in education, such as online distance learning and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), is important to ensure equitable access to quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all.

Nevertheless, there are also concerns about the accessibility, connectivity, quality, the gaps in ICT use, and recognition of qualifications earned through non-traditional modes of learning. In this context, digital distance education is an open educational system that can address such concerns and accelerate progress towards the achievement of the Education 2030 agenda known as Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4).
