Abstract: This article examines how the use of information technology overcomes some of the difficulties in delivering vocational education at a distance. It then discusses how the collaboration of an overseas institution with a local academic partner can offer an enhanced distance education program. In addition to the reflections of the academic and administrative staff, feedback from the students is collected through a questionnaire survey. The students' general course satisfaction and their opinions to the enhanced form of distance education are investigated. The findings of this case study provide a useful reference for distance education providers to enhance their competitiveness when operating in other countries.
