As Internet access increases in Asia and the rest of the world, the use of e-learning has expanded to offer formal as well as informal educational opportunities that were previously not possible to hundreds of millions of learners.As access widens, unique educational modules, courses, and programs are being designed and evaluated throughout the Asia region. This book presents e-learning activities, primarily within higher education, taking place in eight countries from East, Southeast, South, and Western Asia. As is evident, each country has unique issues, challenges, opportunities, and initiatives related to e-learning and the use of technology in education.
