This paper is aiming to present the experience that has been accumulated during the last three years in the attempt of Technological Educational Institute (TEI) to implement the distance learning techniques as an alternative and complementary mean of educational.
Higher education should apply the tools that make them able to solve complex problems and create models and development systems suited to each individual setting, but also should be related to the international ones. During the last ten years a set of factors have influenced dramatically the status of the traditional higher education.
These factors are the following: 1. Increase of the number of student. 2. Increase of the cost of the education. 3. Development of a national library network.
Under the pressure of the radical changes that brought in the Greek educational system of TEI of Patras the above factors put forward on experimental basis in e-learning program in order to accumulate the necessary experience.
The results of these practices are presented in this paper.
