What is Distance Learning?

The term distance learning has many slight variations but the primary function of distance learning is to allow students and instructors to interact from different physical, geographic locations for the purpose of educational instruction. Distance learning courses, often including accredited classes, can be conducted in one of two ways, either synchronously where the student and instructor interact simultaneously or asynchronously where they would not interact at the same time. Regardless which method of distance learning is used, the main benefit is that neither the students or instructor would need to be physically present in a campus classroom.
