Abstract

Seamless learning is a form of learning whereby, regardless of location, the learning process, as it relates to learning needs and readiness, can continue through the aid of technology. Seamless learning environments are spaces that can be accessed independent of time and place through mobile or stationary devices, and that are equipped with technologies capable of meeting learning needs. With the advancements in technology, seamless learning environments are becoming increasingly popular. In this regard, the design of environments that are suitable for seamless learning in open and distance learning (ODL) fields is of critical importance. This study aimed to determine the criteria for the design of seamless learning environments in the context of ODL. In line with this aim, the Delphi technique, a qualitative research approach, was used. A total of 47 criteria under 10 different themes were identified in the study.
