Telematics applications to support educational delivery and participation in traditional universities are rapidly becoming part of the educational setting. Sometimes they are used speciﬁcally to increase distance ﬂexibility in participation, but this is not their only value. Telematics applications are also associated with other forms of ﬂexibility, as well as with heightened efﬁciency and enrichment of the learning process, both for those in full-time traditional attendance and those participating in increasingly variable ways. Issues demanding serious attention include staff and student engagement and support and technical decisions relating to the infrastructure and interface of the technology needed to make the new ﬂexibilities possible. The difﬁculty lies in supporting this evolution in traditional universities with cost-effectiveness analysis.
