Digital Library and Influence On Online Studies
Access to scholarly information through the emergence of DLshas made Distance learning transform into online studies. Most Kenyan universities engaged in Distance learning or Virtual campuses have had to convert their content to digital content so as to stay updated with the technology. Under the previous distance learning systems most students and university staff faced various challenges ranging from distance barrier, inadequate quantity, lost in transit, mutilation, missshelved and scarcity (as a result of out-of-print). This increased burn outs among students and it increased the number of semester defaults among students. According to Kenya Methodist University students found it costly commuting for materials as well as burdened moving around with files.
