Abstract

Distance learning describes a wide range of instructional-learning activities, instructional delivery modalities, and learner interactions characterized by some distance between the teacher and the learner, and mediated by a variety of technological tools (Schlosser & Simonson, 2002; Tiene & Ingram, 2001). Learners can interact with instruction at any time and in any place, such as the workplace, school, a community center, or in their homes (Presby, 2004; Simonson, Smaldino, Albright & Zvacek, 2003). The tools available for the delivery and access of learning materials contribute in large measure to the kind of experiences that learners have with distance learning.
