Abstract

The concept and history of distance educational development and application in the State of South Dakota, USA, provides a potential vision for development of distance education in other parts of the world. South Dakota continued to adopt and adapt four major distance education delivery modes in the past decade: Correspondence Programs, Telecourses, a Digital Dakota Network, and On-line courses and programs. Differences in features and goals of each of these approaches are described, with specific reference to the instructional design theory of Clark in his 1986 media debate work. South Dakota distance educational experience provide important messages for future distance educational development, particularly in parts of the world in which widely dispersed learners need to use emerging instructional technology resources to maintain access and achievement in an information age.
