Challenges in Delivering Distance Education
Chawdhry, Adnan A.
Information Systems Education Journal, v8 n45 Jul 2010
Despite the challenges that exist with DE (Distance Education), university and faculty can provide a strong learning environment for their students if they understand and mitigate the challenges of the DE program. This paper describes a case study of a DE program that offers classroom instruction for multiple sites that are connected using a telecommunication medium. Additionally, the paper describes challenges that are encountered with DE classes and how faculty can improve theses classes by understanding and mitigating these challenges. These challenges include institutional support, student interaction, and quality of instructional information, content delivery, and technology. The paper concludes with a discussion of the case study and recommendations for improving DE.
