Defining Distance Learning and Distance Education.
King, Frederick B.; Young, Michael F.; Drivere-Richmond, Kelly; Schrader, P. G.
Educational Technology Review, v9 n1 2001
This paper offers precise definitions of distance learning and distance education, and their interrelationship. First, a single definition of learning is proposed, and then the concept of learning is broken down into three subcategories: instruction, exploration, and serendipity. Each is defined and the concepts of distance learning and distance education are derived and categorized. (AEF)
