Barriers to Distance Education. Distributed Education: Challenges, Choices, and a New Environment, Sixth in a Series.
Levine, Arthur; Sun, Jeffrey C.
This paper is the sixth, and final, monograph is a series of invited papers on distributed education. It describes the barriers to distance learning, both inside and outside the higher education community. Inside the academy, distance education programs encounter numerous challenges: (1) the academys acceptance of distance education as an appropriate teaching method; (2) competition for limited financial resources; and (3) the ability to withstand the slow governance gauntlet. Outside the academy, distance education encounters varying regulations, laws, policies, and practices imposed by congressional and state legislators, accreditors, and professional associations.
