Abstract

This chapter examines ethical considerations of course development in distance education settings. She highlights non-formal learners’ attributes that must be considered when developing courses, including integration of culture in language curriculum and the role ICT can have in developing students’ linguistic and inter-cultural competence. The author roots her presentation in an underlying open university philosophy. And although emphasis is primarily paid on student needs assessment, issues of cultural diversity, and the use of ICT and its management do receive adequate attention.
