An Overall View of Distance Education in the United States.
Motamedi, Vahid
Distance education is described as instructional delivery that takes place when learners and teachers are separated throughout the learning process by time and physical distance. Research indicates that distance education can provide students with opportunities for learning through alternatives to regular class meetings. Furthermore, research reveals that for some students distance education allows access to education for those who are unable to attend an educational establishment. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overall view of distance education in the United States. The paper begins with a description of distance education, distance education students, and its effectiveness. It then focuses on distance education and technology. Advantages, disadvantages and problems in distance education are discussed. (Contains 29 references.) (Author/AEF)
