Abstract

This chapter surveys the current stae of e-learning in the UK with particular reference to issues of access and retention. It concludes that some of the expectations surrounding e-learning's supposed potential to revolutionise learning and teaching, remove barriers to learning and reduce costs, are unlikely to be fulfilled in the near future without a great deal of imaginative consideration of its current problems.
