What You Need to Know to Take a Distance Learning Class
Distance Learning is defined as a formal educational process in which the majority of the instruction occurs when student and instructor are not in the same place. Instruction may be synchronous (requires all participants to be online at the same moment in time) or asynchronous (learning "anytime, anywhere" meaning that the learning process of a particular subject is performed without fixed class hours in classrooms). Distance Learning may employ correspondence study, audio, video, or computer technologies.
