This paper describes the circumstances that led to the introduction of distance education into Mongolia. It identifies the factors that have shaped it and suggests some appropriate applications of distance learning. The local situation plays an important role in deciding the appropriate delivery mechanism. In Mongolia,the difference in living standards between urban and rural areas is huge. The design of distance learning programs obviously needs to match those very different target groups and contexts, urban and rural areas, formal and non-formal education. In this case, the best strategy is to adopt the blended approach.
