Created and maintained by Barry Willis, the Associate Dean for Outreach and the Engineering Outreach staff at the University of Idaho, this Website is designed to "help teachers, administrators, facilitators, and students understand distance education." The site offers fourteen separate guides to different topics in distance education, including an overview of distance education, teaching strategies, instructional development, evaluation, instructional television and audio, computers in distance education, research, video conferencing, copyright issues, a glossary of terms, and more. The guides are substantial in the information conveyed, if a bit schematic. (We recommend this site more for those looking for a thorough introduction to distance education than for those researching it.) The Website also offers a link to the University's distance education programs in Engineering.
