Challenges of course development and implementation in a dual mode institution in Botswana

Kamau, Judith

Abstract:
Distance education has gained currency as an alternative mode of delivery because of its ability to address issues of equity in the provision of educational opportunity to people who did not go on with their education for one reason or other. It enables institutions, governments and countries to train staff, upgrade peoples' academic and professional qualifications and impart new skills without withdrawing them from their duties in nation building. Its flexibility has made it a viable alternative since it utilizes available physical, human and material resources. It is able to draw from high calibre academicians and other professionals thus maintaining the required standards and parity across similar programmes of study and by so doing dispelled perennial, negative attitudes and prejudices that this mode of delivery is second best.
