Through Canadian, American, Australian and Malaysian case studies, "Collaboration in Distance Education" identifies and analyzes the key factors enhancing and inhibiting the strategic alliances for course development: teaching and credit transfer which have become central features of institutional culture and policy-making in the distance and higher education fields. The high incidence of failed collaborative ventures indicates that the dynamics and strategies for success are poorly understood. This book seeks to redress that lack of understanding, and to assist in future policy-making, both in distance education and throughout the higher education field. The authors conclude that a culture of "collaborative individualism" is emerging which is playing a significant part in the profound changes occurring in the nature and practice of higher education.
