Standards of e-Learning Based Distance Education
Saurabh, Kumar
Journal of Educational Technology, v3 n3 p23-29 Oct-Dec 2006
The term distance education is commonly used to describe courses in which nearly all the interaction between the teacher and student takes place electronically. Electronic communication may take the form of audio, video, e-mail, chat, teleconferencing, and, increasingly, the Internet. Distance education courses range from short term training workshops to undergraduate and graduate programs for college credit. Distance education courses for academic credit have been expanding dramatically at colleges and universities. Proponents of distance education point out that the practice may allow learning to reach thousands or even millions more people on an "anytime anywhere" basis. This applies especially to potential students who are homebound or physically remote from a college campus, as well as students who find it extremely difficult to fit their family and work responsibilities into a traditional academic schedule. This paper proposes a method and modeling framework and proof-of-concept standards that will attempt to fill the gap between alternative processes for distance education.
