While growing up in Chittagong, Bangladesh during the 1970s, Badrul Khan used to dream about having access to well-designed learning resources available only to students in industrial countries. In the '70s it was unthinkable to have equal access to those resources. In the '90s, with the emergence of the World Wide Web, Khan's dream of equal access to quality learning resources became a reality. His desire for broadly available distributed learning systems and his scholarly grounding in the field of educational systems design and technology have enabled him to present a total vision for educational and training possibilities of the new worldwide communications technologies.

Through his teaching and publishing, Professor Khan has been instrumental in creating a coherent framework for Web-based instruction, training, and learning. In his first book, Web-Based Instruction, he took a leadership role in defining the critical dimensions of this new field of inquiry and practice at all levels of education. Reflecting its enormous acceptance worldwide, Web-Based Instruction has become a bestseller and has been adopted by over 350 colleges and universities worldwide. His second book Web-Based Training is a landmark book that covers all aspects of Internet's World Wide Web for training at all levels.

He continues to advance the discourse in the field of distance learning. His contribution to the field of open and distributed learning is recognized throughout the world. As a result, his Managing E-Learning Strategies and E-Learning Quick Checklist books are published in several languages by several publishers located around the world. His 2007 book Flexible Learning in an Information Society includes case studies, design models, strategies, and critical issues encompassing the multiple dimensions of his E-Learning Framework. His publication plan is to author/edit eight different books using the eight dimensions of his e-learning framework. The books User Interface Design for Virtual Environments: Challenges and Advances , Learning on Demand: ADL and Future of e-Learning, and International Handbook of E-Learning are part of the plan.

A sought-after keynote speaker on e-learning and blended-learning, Khan is past President (1999-2000) of the International Division of the Association for Educational and Communication Technology (AECT).
