Distance Education in Library and Information Science Discipline: The Valdosta State University Case
InSITE 2003 • Volume 3 • 2003
The library and information science discipline in the United States has thoroughly embraced distance education to deliver its courses and other curricular offerings. Courses have been or are offered through a variety of mechanisms, some with deep historical roots, others are dependent upon new and emerging Internet technologies. Different distance education methods offer different opportunities but also diffe rent problems. This paper discusses the approach taken at one university - asynchronous Web course delivery - and the lessons we have learned from those experiences. Given our circumstances and opportunities, we have at times adopted alternatives to technological solutions, including hybrid courses and cross-listing of courses at sister institutions to meet student needs.
