From Distance Education to Open and Distance Learning: A Holistic Evaluation of History, Definitions, and Theories [Chapter]Bozkurt, A., & Bozkurt, A. - 2001, January 1 - Http://Services.Igi-Global.Com/Resolvedoi/Resolve.Aspx?Doi=10.4018/978-1-5225-8431-5.Ch016
As pragmatist, interdisciplinary fields, distance education (DE) and open and distance learning (ODL) transform and adapt themselves according to changing paradigms. In this regard, the purpose of this study is to examine DE and ODL from different perspectives to discern their future directions. The study concludes that DE and ODL are constantly developing interdisciplinary fields where technology has become a significant catalyst and these fields become part of the mainstream education....
Resilience, Adaptability, and Sustainability of Higher Education: A systematic Mapping Study on the Impact of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic and the Transition to the New NormalBozkurt, A. - 2022 - Journal of Learning for Development, 9(1), 1–16
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has been a global crisis, affecting many areas of society, including higher education, which has not been immune to its effects. This study, therefore, examines COVID-19 from the perspective of higher education, applying data mining and analytics approaches, i.e., t-SNE analysis, text-mining, and social network analysis, to identify research themes and patterns. The results obtained show that studies have not been restricted to addressing only the impact...
An analysis of peer reviewed publications on openness in education in half a century: Trends and patterns in the open hemisphereBozkurt, A., Koseoglu, S., & Singh, L. - 2018 - Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 0(0)
Openness in education is an evolving concept which is shaped by the changing needs of societies, cultures, geographies, and economies, thus, it does not have a precise definition. By focusing on four sets of generic keywords - open education, open learning, open educational resources (OERs), and open educational practices (OEPs) - this paper examines research in openness in education through a systematic review of peer reviewed literature. In doing so, the researchers sought to draw...

30 Years of Gender Inequality and Implications on Curriculum Design in Open and Distance LearningKoseoglu, S., Ozturk, T., Ucar, H., … Bozkurt, A. - 2020 - Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2020(1), 5
Gender inequality is a pressing issue on a global scale, yet studies on this important issue have stayed on the margins of open and distance learning (ODL) literature. In this study, we critically analyse a batch of ODL literature that is focused on gender inequality in post-secondary and higher education contexts. We use Therborn’s social justice framework to inform and guide the study. This is a comprehensive social justice lens that sees inequality as “a life and death issue,” approaching...
Speculative Futures on ChatGPT and Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI): A Collective Reflection from the Educational LandscapeBozkurt, A., Xiao, J., Lambert, S., … Jandrić, P. - 2023 - Asian Journal of Distance Education
While ChatGPT has recently become very popular, AI has a long history and philosophy. This paper intends to explore the promises and pitfalls of the Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) AI and potentially future technologies by adopting a speculative methodology. Speculative future narratives with a specific focus on educational contexts are provided in an attempt to identify emerging themes and discuss their implications for education in the 21st century. Affordances of (using) AI in...
