What Does Distance Learning Mean?

Distance learning, also known as "virtual classrooms," "distance education," "online learning," or "e-learning" is a form of education where teachers and students are not physically present during instruction. Instead, all involved use various online platforms and technologies to interact to communicate lesson plans, typically using the world-wide-web, Wi-Fi connections, and the use of personal computers.

What are the benefits of distance learning?

Distance learning can enhance communication between learners and their instructors, as well as peer to peer correspondence. Distance learning can also be more cost-efficient compared to traditional education as it eliminates travel time. Digital textbooks tend to be significantly cheaper for e-learners. Distance learning also makes it easier for students to customize their curriculum, focusing on their weaker points of knowledge. Many students report feeling they have an excellent sense of school support as soon as they sign-in. Distance learning enables children with immune deficiencies or illnesses to continue to receive a quality education from the comfort of home. Distance learning also empowers students across all socioeconomic statuses, gender identities, races, learning abilities, and behavior disorders to receive the education they deserve.
