What is distance learning?

Distance learning, also known as correspondence education or home study, is a form of education where there is little or no face-to-face interaction between students and their instructors. Distance learning students usually study from home, instead of attending physical classes.

Some other features of distance learning include the following:

  • Study material is delivered to students via post, courier, email, or the internet.
  • Assessments are carried out by means of written assignments, exams, and/or portfolios of evidence.
  • Academic support is provided to students through various channels, including telephone, post, email, and instant messaging programs.
