Distance learning is a term used to describe a learning experience in which the instructor is in a location remote from that of the student. For centuries, distance learning has been used to educate students and, in the late 1800s, Penn State University utilized the new “Rural Free Delivery” mail system to offer correspondence courses to students in remote locations (Banas & Emory, 1998).
