  • Jakobsdóttir, Sólveig (European Distance and E-Learning Network, 2018-06-17)
    Some distance education programs offer campus sessions in their courses. That has been the case at the University of Iceland – School of Education (UISE) for the past decades. The question is how such sessions are best organised. Lectures and seminars ...
  • Jónasson, Jón Torfi (Springer Nature, 2016-10-20)
    The point of departure of the paper is that there are profound social, cultural, technological, scientific and environmental changes which occur at most local but also at global levels of the modern world. From these will stem huge challenges in all ...
