Global - Services - Tele-education

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2006 and has not been updated. Radio schooling services were established in North America and Australia about 40 years ago, and there has been a gradual move towards remote educational services for those students who are not able to attend the traditional schools, escalating in the 90s with the development of the Internet. This report describes the present use of telecommunications to provide education, including telephone, Internet and videoconferencing. It lists the benefits and challenges of these technologies, organisations that are involved in promoting them, and forecasts for the future of this approach to learning.

"As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it."

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
