Distance Education August 25, 2007

Just right off the blocks, I would define distance education as a type of learning experience that involves a large degree of separation between teacher and student in relation to physical space and real time and which usually involves the use of modern technologies such as computers, virtual classrooms with interactive televisions, and web-based programs.  

 Additionally, the teaching-learning method is useful for students who have difficulty attending classes in a regular classroom and cannot commit their time to normal classroom hours.  In this situation, students must learn to budget their time in order to keep pace with the workload – the advantage of this, however, is that students can work at their own pace which should improve their learning.
