Adult learning is also increasingly exploring the possibilities afforded through information and communication technologies (ICTs). Alternative and innovative delivery methods have been developed in terms of providing distance education to increase access to educational opportunities, particularly for remote and rural communities. ICTs have also have played an important role in the development and distribution of learning materials, such as facilitating the production of literacy materials in a variety of languages, and enabling increased access to materials to sustain literacy skills, increase continuing education opportunities, and promote lifelong learning.
The reference guide details some of the institutions and delivery modes in the administration and co-ordination of adult learning policies and programmes. It represents therefore only a modest starting point for discussions on best practices, future directions, challenges, and achievements in adult learning in the Asian context.
