Crossing the Great Divides: Distance learning and flexible delivery in Adult Basic Education (2006)

Research report for Ontario's Literacy and Basic Skills Program

This is a research report on a project begun in 2003 that explored the possibilities for distance and flexible delivery of the Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) Program in the province of Ontario. The project addresses the literacy needs of various traditionally under-served populations and consists of two phases.

In phase one, four LBS agencies were chosen to explore distance learning for their literacy services. The agencies were provided with information, training, resources, proposal development guidance, and other supports in order to create a feasible plan for distance delivery in each region. In phase two, a research plan was established and research activities were coordinated across the four participating agencies.

The project report contains three sections: an introductory discussion of flexible and distance learning in adult literacy with a list of the research questions and a description of the agencies involved; a comprehensive explanation of the methodology used; and a thorough discussion of the results.
