The TRIBUNE European Learning Technology Collection has published "National issues at stake: Contextualized viewpoints on learning technology", its eighth volume in the series on learning technology. TRIBUNE is a DELTA project for the dissemination of information concerning European research and development in learning technology activities. The publication presents the findings of the TRIBUNE national networks on the national issues concerning the use of technology in education and training and the programmes of open and distance learning. TRIBUNE national networks are the national contact points for the dissemination of information and the increase in local awareness about the development of open and distance learning in Europe. The publication is composed of 14 national reports providing basic information and analysis on the national education and training system, the state of the art in the use of technology in open and distance learning, and the future developments in this field. Each report is followed by practical information about the members of the network and the main organizations active in learning technology.
