In the last fifteen years a number of factors have contributed to a major change in the status of distance education as an appropriate and effective mechanism for the education and training of adults. The DELTA programme addresses issues related to the use, for learning, of new emerging technologies in the areas of information technology, telecommunications and broadcasting. The aim is to allow more effective use to be made of training material by reducing the cost of quality software and support mechanisms. This report discusses the DELTA programme from its inception to 1990. The programme structure is presented, following which there is a discussion of the action lines that represent priority research areas. A comprehensive annex includes project summaries.
