We consider the subject area from the perspective of a geographically distributed university, with multiple campuses and networked educational provision, as well as from the distribution of educational resources across a diversity of hardware and software applications.

The group is interested in the experiences of the multiple stakeholders in distributed education, including the technical support, academic leadership, staff development, and the students’ experiences.
