What is Distance Learning?

Wikipedia – distance learning is the process of creating an educational experience of equal quality for the learner to best suit their needs outside the classroom.

Dictionary.com – Education in which students take academic courses by accessing information and communicating with the instructor asynchronously over a computer network. Also called distance education.

While both of these definitions are good, the Wikipedia definition, in its simplicity, hits the mark I am aiming for in this series-creating an anytime, anywhere, any device learning experience that rivals and can even improve upon the traditional classroom experience.

The next post is titled: Who benefits from distance learning?
