A study was launched on the use of satellite and other communication technology to overcome difficulties in providing education to the multitude of remote islands which dot the Pacific island nations region. In addition to gathering and analyzing existing literature on distance education, surveys were conducted on the subject in various countries both in and outside the region. The results of the study to date were compiled in a midterm report. A highlight of the project was a trans-Pacific tele-conference in which participants in Japan and Fiji conferred through television monitors in a satellite link-up. The findings of the completed study will be used to guide further assistance for distance education in the region.
