The Advances in Distance Education Technologies (ADET) Book Series is a forum for researchers and practitioners to disseminate practical solutions to the automation of open and distance learning. The series seeks to provide an ongoing outlet for high-quality, emerging research principles in the areas of online learning and pedagogical technologies. Through bridging the gap in available literature in this field of utmost importance, the series serves as a critical vehicle of further developing distance education technologies. Targeted to academic researchers and engineers who work with distance learning programs and software systems, as well as general users of distance education technologies and methods, the Advances in Distance Education Technologies (ADET) Book Series discusses computational methods, algorithms, implemented prototype systems, and applications of open and distance learning. The book series welcomes accounts of the implementation of distance learning technologies and applications and endeavors to foster the growth of these areas.
