Annual Report FY 2004 - Research at Cornell

01. N’Dri T. Assié-Lumumba, ed., Africana Studies and Research Center

Cyberspace, Distance Learning, and Higher Education in Developing Countries: Old and Emergent Issues of Access, Pedagogy, and Knowledge Production (Brill, 2004). The new information and communication technologies (ICTs) offer educational possibilities for developing countries. However, ICTs are often perceived as a panacea, particularly for the expansion of higher education. Assié-Lumumba argues that there is a need to analyze persistent and new grounds of unequal opportunity for access, learning, and the production of knowledge. The book addresses fundamental questions about the educational process, including the use of technology in higher education as a holistic educational system for social development. The essays on developing countries, with a focus on Asia and Africa, include case studies and deal with vital issues in education.
