For the first time guidelines have been published on how broadcasters around the world can encourage audiences to produce better quality user-generated content (UGC) and to improve media and information literacy (MIL). The new guidelines, which make for very interesting reading, will also enable the public to become more media and information literate. They were prepared by Martin Scott, a lecturer in Media and International Development in the School of International Development at the University of East Anglia, UK and are available from the UNESCO web site. The purpose of these guidelines is to outline ways in which broadcasters can promote MIL to their audiences and at the same time encourage the production of high quality UGC.

Starting with a comprehensive summary of relevant educational theory, the book revisits, in a lively way, the great dichotomies that have marked the history of open and distance learning. Theory and Practice of Online Learning, edited by Terry Anderson and Fathi Elloumi, is concerned with assisting providers of online education with useful tools to carry out the teaching and learning transactions online. It presents, in an easily readable form, the theory, administration, tools, and methods of designing and delivering learning online. By doing so, the authors bring to the teaching community a valuable product which should go a long way in popularizing the use of the learning technologies.
