50th Jubilee of Distance Learning

On 15 November 2010 the University officially launched the 50th Jubilee book, From a Distance, to celebrate the last 25 years of Distance Education.

The book, written by Emeritus Professor Tom Prebble, picks up from the story of the first 25 years which appears in, Campus Beyond the Walls (J.M.R. Owens, 1985). It describes the rapid growth of Extramural Studies through the 1970s and 1980s; the evolution of media used to deliver and support distance teaching; and the systems employed to run such a large and complex service. The book acknowledges the contribution made by the hundreds of academics who have taught by distance over the last 25 years.

Copies of From a Distance are available for purchase through the Massey University Alumni Shop and electronic copies can be downloaded for free from the following link.
