Abstract:
This thesis is a comparative study of three national distance university projects in Latin America, one abortive, one struggling and one moderately successfUl. The fieldwork took the form of naturalistic investigation and a huge volume of interview data and documentation was collected. For economy, each project was scrutinized in turn under four separate conceptual headings, leadership, the model adopted, viewed from the university centre and local study centres, the Higher Education setting and the intended and actual clientele (where there was one). Not all the conceptual areas threw up data equivalent in quantity and kind across all projects. This circumstance encouraged and permitted a range of plausible, significant and grounded inferences.
