Amidst the euphoria about the new frontiers of technology sometimes perceived as a panacea for expansion of higher education in developing countries, there is a need to analyze persistent and new grounds of unequal opportunity for access, learning, and the production of knowledge.
This volume addresses fundamental questions about the educational process such as:
· The use of technology in higher education for a holistic educational system for social development
· The actual technological capacity in Africa and possibilities for virtual higher education
· Cultural relevance of the curriculum and pedagogy
· Pedagogy and gender in cyberspace education
· Perils of externally-driven distance education programs in Africa and the quest for ownership towards development
· Challenges and opportunities in the making of knowledge society in an Asian context
· Strategies to promote constructive virtual higher education in Africa and Asia.
