Revolution in Communication Technologies: Impact on Distance Education


Information and Communication Technologies have transformed the way the world lives and thinks. Education, especially, Distance Education is no different. While the technologies per se are an important factor, the social milieus in which these technologies are implemented are equally important.

The vibrant interface between social and technological issues in the Educational field is an important area of discourse. The current paper discusses these and many more issues in ample detail.

KEYWORDS: Communication Technology, Technology and Distance Education in India, Convergence of technologies.
