Distance education may be defined as a set of practices to plan and implement educational activities where there is a separation between teaching and learning. This separation may result from distance, time, or other barriers. Distance education offers a way to overcome this separation, chiefly through its learning materials, the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to provide tutoring, linking learners to the system and each other, and the use of feedback and student support systems. The technologies used in distance education systems include mail, face-to-face sessions, radio, television, audio and video, compact disks, e-mail and other computer connections, and teleconferencing systems (Murphy, Paud, Anzalone, Bosch & Moulton, 2002, p. 3).
