What is Distance Learning?

Distance learning is generally thought of as education that occurs for students away from a traditional classroom setting and today, with the use of technology. The earliest version of distance learning dates back to the early 1700s in the form of correspondence courses via U.S. mail.

Today, distance learning may involve a lecture on television, video and audio content on the Internet or on a DVD/CD, USB drive, and printed material. Students interact via regular mail, e-mail, phone, and voice and video chat. Distance learning can take place any time and any place the learner has access to the course and ways to communicate electronically.

Online courses, such as our A‘o Makua courses, are Internet based. Students complete the coursework on their own time, and interact with their kumu and classmates through email, discussion boards, and instant messaging.
