In response to Europe's growing need for flexible and distance learning, the DELTA Exploratory Action was launched in June 1988. This two year action was a pre-normative and pre-competitive R&D exploration in the field of learning technology. The objectives were to investigate the issues and potential of the harnessing of technology to the problems of life-long learning, and to consider if further actions were required. At this exploratory stage, it was necessary to assess the readiness of the main sector actors to join their efforts at a European level to undertake research, validate some initial assumptions and identify the most promising future avenues, whilst providing some tangible results. This report identifies and synthesises the most promising findings of the 30 projects involved in the DELTA Exploratory Action, in the following areas: (i) the flexible and distance learning market; (ii) applications and systems developments; (iii) methodologies for the delivery of training.
