Investigation indicates that this kind of education requires teaching resources of various media. Nowadays in the construction of the multi-media teaching resources some problems remain to be solved, i.e., to organize a good working team specialized in the construction of open and distance education resources, to keep the resources in line with the technology available, and to improve the quality of them. Factors such as creativity, support services for self-learning and the optimization and integration of various media should be taken into account. Furthermore, the influence on the construction of various teaching resources from such elements as costs, regional factors, course requirements and resource users should also be studied.
