The European Commission, DG XIII, has published the final report of the Telematics for Flexible and Distance Learning programme (DELTA) (1991-1995). The European Commission started its first systematic work on technologies for education and training in 1986 in the pilot projects which led to the exploratory action on developing European learning through technology advance (DELTA). These experiences were carried over under the "Telematics for Flexible and Distance Learning" area under the Community's Thrid Framework Programme. The purpose of this final report is to present the key scientific results achieved by the projects, concerted actions and studies financed under the DELTA programme so as to ensure their dissemination to decision makers, politicians, company managers, public servants, service providers and learning technology consumers. It is anticipated that this report will be a valuable reference document for all organizations involved int he "Education and Training" sector of the new Telematics Applications programme under the Community's Fourth Framework Programme. It also aims to place the DELTA programme within the context of present day thinking about developments towards the Information Society and, in particular, future developments towards learning in the Information Society.
