What is distance education or distance
Distance education is defined as a field of education that
focuses on the pedagogy, technology, and instructional
system designs that aim to deliver education to students
who are not physically "on site" in a traditional classroom.
Distance education or distance learning?
In my point of view , Distance learning is broader than
distance education. That’s mean distance learning
refers to the use of educational materials or media by
learners who are not necessarily linked with an
educational organization or engaged in
communication with an instructor but distance
education refers to process of teaching and learning
which requires organization and communication
between learners and instructors through various
Print is the most common medium used in
distance education. Forms of print are
textbooks, manuals, course notes, and study
guides. Print materials are relatively
inexpensive to develop or distribute (Moore,
p78). Print is used in some form by almost all
distance education courses, regardless of what
other media they employ. Print media is used
here in an "asynchronous way" by the learner.
History of distance education and technology
Audio- and Videocassettes
Materials is generally expensive and involves specialized skills
(recording, editing, directing). Some distance learning
provide what's called "video-based instruction". In such
program, video tapes are the main medium of delivery of
information to the learner.
History of distance education and
technology (modern technology)
With the fast growth of the Internet, and the fast progress of
communication, the world wide web is a new promising
medium for distance learning. With the enormous number of
resources available online, and the increasing number of
people who have access to the Internet, web-based
instruction is considered one of the fastest media for
teaching and learning. The world wide web provides a cost-
effective, technology rich, and interactive medium. Even
though she did not introduce web-based instruction as a
medium for distance learning
Defining Distance Education
Defining Distance Education
In conclusion, many key features characterize
1. The separation of teacher and learner;
2. The separation among learners;
3. The use of one medium to deliver instruction; and
4. The use of a communication channel to facilitate interaction
and support learners.
