Instructional technology and distance learning have changed the meaning of attending college. Today's students can now learn through various forms of electronic communications media, including radio, television, the computer, and the Internet. But are the costs outweighing the benefits? This new addition to the Series on Higher Education, analyzes and assesses the costs of information technology for teaching and learning in higher education. Containing 15 essays that identify the positive and negative cost implications of information technology, this timely and detailed resource also explores how the increased use of information technology is transforming higher education, the different ways it can be used to teach different kinds of students, and the impact this increased spending has on college budgets.

Review:

How can institutes of higher learning make information technology (IT) a priority, when online education drives up the cost? These essays raise important issues relating to copyright and fair use policies, faculty competence and cooperation, student performance and satisfaction, and hidden costs. (Library Journal)

Dollars, Distance, and Online Education is an extremely important work. Its overall breadth and the depth of each contribution make it the definitive text on the 'new economics of higher education.' In fact, one could easily see it serving as the core text in a special-topics graduate seminar on technology costs in higher education finance. This collection will be of interest to university and college workers who want to know what administrators are being told about the financial costs and benefits of online education. This book is an important resource, and campus administrators will find a wealth of useful details to help them manage their immediate technology crises and incorporate technology into their primary planning process throughout campus. Budget analysts, whether on campus, in systems or working for elected officials will find the detailed case studies, cost equations, planning and accounting methodologies to be helpful. Campus academic officers also need this handbook. (Economics of Education Review)
