The editors wish to acknowledge the assistance received from the Commonwealth of Learning and its editorial advisory group in the development of the plan of the book.
Work on this book has been carried out in parallel with research activity by the International Research Foundation for Open Learning on the use of open and distance learning for teachers. This was funded by UNESCO and by the Department for International Development (DFID), under a project that was funded as part of DFID's knowledge and research strategy, 'Researching the Issues 2000'. We are grateful to both agencies for being able to use material developed within those projects. It has fed into the book generally and is reflected, in particular, in material in chapters 2 and 5. We are also grateful to Hilary Perraton for permission to reproduce Table 11.2 in Chapter 11.
