ABSTRACT
In this paper we propose a distance education model for Turkish universities to accommodate more students in tertiary education. The model is based on the distance education that has successfully been employed at Charles Sturt University, Australia. We also discuss issues related to web based distance education such as assessment, use of communication technology and course materials to be developed. Benefits of partnership between industry and education institutions are highlighted.
