Research results on distance learning in Finland

The University of Turku published their first results of research on the status of distance learning in Finnish basic education. Distance learning is organised in very different ways in Finland and using a variety of different tools and mechanisms. Very traditional ICT tools (email, eLearning platforms and video conferences) and traditional learning materials (books, internet) are being used within distance learning courses.
