dc.description This book is to provide a step-by-step guideline for managing projects in general, and managing distance education projects in particular. It is directed at two audiences, namely, practitioners who find themselves having to run numerous projects, both big and small, on a day-to-day basis, and open and distance learning practitioners who are team members of projects within their institutions. en_US
dc.description.abstract The book's primary objective is to sensitise those whose professional commitment is the purveyance of open and distance learning products and services. On the platform of knowledge and how such knowledge is globalised, DE has emerged with vigour to defy the erstwhile stigma that it plays second fiddle to what has been termed conventional education. Evidence of successes in DE abound, but for that to happen it is not a question of approaching it in a hit or miss fashion. It adds voice to that state of affairs, but this time with special attention duly paid to the field of distance education. Truthfully, project management has been written about, but in our literature review, at least in Southern Africa, there has been no specificity in writing about the potential of ideas about DE in elevating praxis to even higher echelons. en_US
