Abstract

The title of this book resembles the title of ‘Tele-learning in a Digital World’ by Betty Collis, published in 1996. The earlier book was focused on distance learning, but this one explores how learning can be made more flexible for campus-based students as well as those who are studying at a distance. Flexible Learning in a Digital World is more compact, offering a structured means to understanding flexible learning, along with sets of guidelines that can help in its adoption within an institution. It has a story to tell about institutional change and the main lessons learnt from experiences at the University of Twente in the Netherlands, where both Collis and her co-author Jef Moonen have been working for many years. Indeed, the authors draw on 30 years of experience in the deployment and evaluation of educational technology at their institution, and link to this evidence from broader research literature, which enables them to give a well contextualised account of the changes brought about by Web-based learning over the past decade.
