Enhancing distance learning using quality digital libraries and CITIDEL
The past ten years have demonstrated an insurgence and explosive growth of digital libraries. This paper shows how the National Science Foundation STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Education Digital Library (NSDL) initiative can be useful to teachers and students engaged in distance learning and education. It will also explore how the computing component of NSDL can be a vital tool for the study of computing.
