A changing education landscape, diverse learner needs and technological advancements make this the perfect time for online and distance learning.

In this article, the author defines distance education and presents criteria that could be applied to decisions as to how to deliver content over distance using technology. The technologies, tools and resources being used by educators to facilitate learning from afar are highlighted.
