Multimedia approaches to distance education have been mooted for further development at a time when there is less government involvement in New Zealand education. The Internet is a likely resource for exploitation by distance education institutions. Not only does the Net appear to be a huge source of information for teachers and students, but it could also serve as a testing bed for multimedia teaching/learning applications. However, the use of the Internet involves connectivity, system familiarity, and social and cultural issues. Because of the need to resolve these issues, this paper reiterates the necessity for a comprehensive national distance education policy.
