Distance Learning: An Effective Educational Delivery System.
Omoregie, Mike
This paper describes the findings of various researchers on the role of faculty, learners, administrators, and technology in the effectiveness of distance learners. New technology and learners' characteristics have contributed to the effectiveness of distance education. The planning and organizing of instructional materials for distance education have increased the effectiveness of the delivery process. Improved modern technology tools and software applications play a significant role in the effectiveness of distance education. Research suggests that there are no significant differences between distance and traditionally delivered instruction. Research also suggests that faculty development and variables such as student demographics, motivation, attrition, cognitive style, gender, and achievement play a significant role in distance learning. Distance education preparation should include faculty in-service training, course loads, staff support, and administrators. Distance learning can be an effective instructional academic delivery system for adult learners in schools and industries if all the key players are involved in the process. (Author/SWC)
