Distributed Learning: Defining the Term

"Traditionally distance learning has referred to the provision of educational services to clients in remote or distant locations from a central information source or repository, using a variety of technologies from print to interactive video.

Increasingly these educational services are being distributed to clients in urban and campus settings where geographic distance is not a factor.... Hence the term "a distributed learning" is a more accurate description of the evolving use of technology to provide educationalservices....With the advent of cost effective telecommunications and computer networking capabilities ... students can work at home via a computer, with on-line teacher support...

The use of distributed learning also enables districts to deliver services to students in their homes or local community schools."
