The book, ‘Open & Distance Education in the New Millennium: A Chronology in Making’, is a compilation of some historic events which took place in the new millennium (staring from 2001) in realm of ODE. It refers to some noted ODE related terms, technologies, projects, publications, prophecies, etc. Chronologies by its very nature have some advantages over the regular books. One can start reading it from any page and stop at any point. Each event in a chronology by itself carries a story, and depending on one’s own background, orientation, perception and vision one can get some inspiration to contribute to the system or the discipline

In his Foreword, Dr Moore G. Michael, Distinguished Professor of Education, Emeritus, has noted: “This is indeed a tour de force, offered as a capstone to the author’s four decades in our field, the product of both his long experience, as well as what must have been a monumental and surely at times almost overwhelming effort of scholarship. I know of no other such chronology in Open and Distance Learning, or even the broader field of education”.
