The Implementation of Distance Higher Education Policy


The policy tools for implementing services for citizens to increase capacity, competence, and qualifications through distance higher education (DHE) are widely accessible. It is however unclear which methods the Government uses and can use to implement these DHE policies operationally for citizens to immediately obtain the benefits. Furthermore, the opportunities for citizens to continue to higher education are limited, as evidenced by the low gross participation rate (APK). This rate is around 34.5% due to factors such as policymakers’ commitment, policy implementers’ ability, inequality of access, and public knowledge about DHE. Information technology is a tool for implementing distance education that has a substantial systemic and constructive impact on dedicated students. It also affects the continuity of the Government, the House of Representatives, and academics.
