From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Distance Education is a field of expertise exploring situations in which the learner and the teacher are separated in time, space or both. Desmond Keegan, (1956) defined as key characteristics of this field:

• The separation of the teacher from the learner(s)
• The use of technical media
• The influence of an educational organization
Other authors (Gayol, 1999) have added as key attributes:
•The emphasis on the design of educational materials
• The central role conferred to learners in the educational process
The lack of immediacy between instructor and student has a profound impact in the educational transactions, in the design of materials and in the organization of the teaching/learning process (Moore and Kearsley, 20

Types of distance education courses:

Correspondence conducted through regular mail
Internet conducted either synchronously or asynchronously
Telecourse/Broadcast where content is delivered via radio or television
CD-ROM where the student interacts with computer content stored on a CD-ROM
PocketPC/Mobile Learning where the student accesses course content stored on a mobile device or through a wireless server
