Distributed learning can be conceived as a means of providing learning opportunities beyond the boundaries of the traditional education system, through utilization of an available range of information technologies. Distributed learning sequences comprise e-mail, Internet, WWW, videoconferencing (virtual conferencing), groupware, newsgroups, simulations, e-groups, chatrooms, and interactive and instructional software utilities. A distributed learning platform facilitates a learner-centered educational paradigm rather than a tutor-centered system, and promotes interactive learning, where the learner can initiate the learning processes.
