United Kingdom Centre for Materials Education offers its 12 Guides for Lecturers free online, and this is one of them. The guide is a "distillation of the essential elements of distance education and a succinct guide to how to produce effective distance learning materials." The guide is broken into sections, including definitions and concepts of distance education, learner support, and online learning. The guide also discusses how to define the purpose of a distance education course or module, as well as suggestions on how to structure and pace the learning environment while engaging students. This is a helpful guide for teachers and administrators considering creating new distance education courses, or adding an online component to a traditional course.
