Webinar: Distance learning in rural areas – Is there life after the end of educational projects?

When: 5 March 2018, 13.00 – 14.00 CET

Watch the recording of the webinar.

Over the last 20 years there have been hundreds of projects in the Nordic region where distance learning and ICT have been seen as key factors for sustainable development in rural areas. Some projects have been extremely successful and have had significant effects on the local economy whereas others simply disappeared after the funding ran out. We would like to investigate the long-term impact of distance learning projects in rural areas and to identify what conditions and elements in these projects that can cause/lead to successful long-term effects.

Questions to be discussed

  • What are the success factors behind a project promoting the development of distance education in rural areas?
  • What are the barriers to successful development?
