Welcome to ICDEL 2020

2020 the 5th International Conference on Distance Education and Learning (ICDEL 2020) will be held in Beijing, China during May 22-25, 2020, co-located with 2020 the 3rd International Conference on Education Research and Policy (ICERP 2020).

Distance education has been changing its nature and gaining momentum in the past couple of decades, under the influence of ICT and learning sciences' developments, up to become an established part of the current education world. The engine of this growth has been the technological development of diverse, two-way communication channels apt to support interaction and joint work in different ways, effectively removing time and place constraints. Such development has contributed to change the field: not only there is currently a major focus on distance education at most institutions around the world, but also fostering students' active involvement and self-regulation has been receiving growing attention, increasingly moving courses away from traditional face-to-face approaches. Distance education is prone to further evolution and diffusion, following the changes of technology and culture. We can expect, in particular,

• more personalized and adaptive learning, allowing students to blend, at individual pace, varied resources distributed across settings and institutions;

• convergence of multiple technologies in a single device, creating a new level of functionality and interaction;

• development of more effective approaches and regulations for accreditation;

• attempts towards courses' automation.
