Distance education is a system and process that connects learners and instructors with educational resources from a variety of geographically separate sites using a variety of different media. Students and instructors are separated from each other by either distance of time. Two way communication exists between the learner, instructor, and other learners either through print or some form of electronic media. Though modern technologies have drawn more attention to the potential available through distance learning more, it is not a new idea. Correspondence courses date back to the 1800's with students receiving materials from their instructors, completing prescribed assignments, and returning then to the instructor for written feedback. Since that time, however, telephone lines, satellites, video and other electronic advances have made it possible to communicate with any number of individuals or groups instantaneously in remote areas at relatively little expense. Now with the aid of computers, students can complete formal education requirements in the comfort of their homes at any time drawing information from traditional sources as well as through the innumerable resources available through the World Wide Web. In today's fast-paced world, conventional wisdom tells us that we have to keep learning in order to advance professionally, financially and personally. Now the question becomes, how is this possible when work and family obligations prevent us from attending a former school setting? Since most traditional education systems are not accommodating to mature adults with busy lifestyles many professionals are actively seeking an alternative form of education. For such individuals distance learning may prove to be the ideal solution.
Within a context of rapid technological changes and shifting market conditions, the American education system is challenged to meet this growing demand without further increasing tuition fees. For this reason some educational institutions are starting to develop distance learning programs. These types of programs can offer opportunities not only to further one's education but also open the door to new career options.
Some educators question whether distant students learn as much as those receiving traditional face-to-face instruction. But recent research, comparing distance education to traditional instruction, indicates that distance learning can be as effective as traditional instruction.
Research further suggests that distant students bring basic characteristics to their learning experience which influence their success in coursework. Distance education students are voluntarily seeking further education and have post-secondary education goals with expectations for higher grades. They are also highly motivated and self-disciplined.
