It may seem a little strange for me to be writing about Flexible Delivery and printed material! If it does seem strange, that's unfortunate, since such a response reflects an unfortunate understanding of Flexible Delivery. It seems to me that Flexible Delivery (and the related concept, Flexible Leaming) tends to be seen as equivalent to distance education and the backwash from that, the substitution of 'ed. tech.' for traditional forms of classroom teaching. I don't want to say that this is a mistake, exactly; it's how the term is used. But I do want to object to the way this understanding influences the motivation for and adoption of Flexible Delivery.
