Regional University Access: A Case Study from the South West

Education in Rural Australia Volume 12, Number 1, ISSN 1036-0026


A study examining university service delivery in isolated rural southwestern Australia interviewed 25 active and inactive distance students. Issues identified include isolation, lack of peer interaction/support, limited access to academic resources, and the need for motivation. Respondents indicated that methodology, face to face contact, and an understanding of local learning cultures were more important than technology. (TD)
