What is Distance Learning?
This term is the broad label applied to education programs that can be implemented remotely. Today, it is almost synonymous with online learning or eLearning, but that was not always the case.Before the widespread adoption of virtual learning environments, distance learning was also conducted via independent study where students would rely on research through their own local resources while completing assignments for an instructor who rarely if ever met with them face to face. Correspondence schools are a good example of pre-internet distance learning programs.
