The activity of costing is central to the planning and development of educational systems. Unfortunately many people are put off by the mere mention of costs but, Greville Rumble points out, there is nothing intrinsically difficult about costing. All it requires is a certain degree of logic and care. This practical book gives the reader the insight and confidence to cost their own open and distance learning projects, by providing the necessary technical tools to undertake costing and to analyse the behaviour of costs. The author dissects in detail the arguments underlying the cost and economics of open and distance learning as well as identifying the component parts within these systems, and explains their significance. He provides evidence and references from around the world. The initial chapters outline ideas, concepts and relationships that will enable the reader to cost particular activities. Other chapters identify the factors to be considered in designing open and distance learning courses, the choice of media and levels of student support. The topics examined include designing courses, the costs of media - text, audio, video and computing, the costs of student support, comparative cost efficiency of distance and traditional education, cost effectiveness and cost benefit, and the financing of distance education. The Costs and Economics of Open and Distance Learning will be essential reading for open and distance learning designers, educators, trainers, managers, planners and financiers of O&DL institutions and courses, and for those interested in the economics of education.
