dc.description.abstractThe success of a distance education institution depends greatly on the effectiveness of its media system. Distance learning courses are normally designed in the form of integrated multi- media packages. To design an effective distance learning course, careful selection of media must be taken into account. This is because it is believed that the right choice of medium for instruction, together with careful integration of components in multi-media learning packages, can enhance students'learning skills. The main concern addressed in this study is the criteria used in the selection, design, and use of media in distance learning courses in the Open University of the United Kingdom (OU) and Sukothai Thammathirat Open University, Thailand (STOU). The study observes two different kinds of integration employed in course design processes at OU and STOU. Attitudes of media producers and students in both universities towards the design of broadcast materials as integral parts of multi-media packages are examined. The study describes how different approaches to multi-media integration affect ways in which students learn, and develop their skills in learning. It goes on to suggest that higher- order learning skills cannot be taught and learned as part of a regular curriculum, but they can be developed through the use of well-designed integrated multi-media packages. Two selected courses from OU and STOU are analyzed in this respect.en_GB
