9780787955731: Digital Dilemma: Issues of Access, Cost, and Quality in Media-Enhanced and Distance Education (J-B ASHE Higher Education Report Series (AEHE))

"A clear, jargon-free, interesting report that takes a serious look at the digital dilemma issues and provides a good perspective."
--Steven Sachs, dean of information technology, Northern Virginia Community College

This report not only examines issues of access and equity in computer-mediated education, but also explores issues of cost, affordability, quality, and effectiveness. As policymakers and institutional planners struggle to make sense of new and emerging technology, they also must be prepared to implement statewide and federal policy reforms, standardize hardware and software configurations, affirm the social nature of learning, and preserve the quality and core values of higher education. The author discusses these and other key issues of the new digital age, offering advice and recommAndations to thoughtful leaders on the "front lines" of change.

Review:

"This report is well written. The approach of presenting a dichotomy between millennial restructuralists and incremental reformists is a dramatic method that will engage the reader while providing a quick overview of the spectrum of ideas, approaches, and issues that need to be resolved." (Jacques H. Dubois, project director, PBS Going the Distance and president, Synergy Plus, Inc.)

"This is a clear, jargon-free, interesting report that takes a serious look at the digital dilemma issues and provides a good perspective." (Steven Sachs, dean of information technology, Northern Virginia Community College).

"Not only is this issue timley, but it brings together a number of critical issues that are, for the most part, discussed only in separate, distinct conversations. The author has an excellent track record in these areas and has generated a fine discussion." (Watson Scott Swail, senior policy analyst, SRI International)
