Distance education, distance
learning, or D-Learning is a
mode of delivering education
and instruction, often on an
individual basis, to students
who are not physically present
in a traditional setting such as a
Distance learning provides
"access to learning when the
source of information and the
learners are separated by time
and distance, or both."
E-learning refers to the use of electronic
media and information and
communication technologies (ICT) in
education. E-learning is broadly inclusive
of all forms of educational technology in
learning and teaching.
E- Learning is used as:
e-learning as a technological medium that assists in the
communication of knowledge, and its development and
4. e-learning administrative tools such as education
management information systems (EMIS).
e-learning as an educational approach or tool
that supports traditional subjects;
e-learning itself as an educational subject; such courses may be called "Computer
Studies" or "Information and CommunicationTechnology (ICT)";
• ICS Learn offers GCSEs,A Levels and degrees and
offers vocational qualifications in child
care, business, retail, construction, trade and
engineering, hospitality and travel.
• Most courses provided by ICS are supplied via paper-
based learning materials that consist of several units
that students complete as they progress through
the course. Once a student has completed a module
he or she is then sent the next module.
• Courses are now being developed that are supplied
via new media, such as a new ethical hacking course
that is pre-loaded on an iPod and an information
technology course that is pre-loaded on a laptop.
??? In a collaborative learning
environment, knowledge is
shared or transmitted among
learners as they work towards
common learning goals, for
example, a shared
understanding of the subject at
hand or a solution to a problem.
Learners are not passive
receptacles but are active in
their process of
acquisition as they
for information, and
with their peers.
Online learners who seek flexibility in their study
situations can view participation in group learning
as an impediment to their progress and often balk at
or at best tolerate collaborative learning situations
imposed by course design. Students may have
reservations about their ability to work as part of a
group (Harasim, Hiltz, Teles, & Turoff, 1998), or they
may have become reluctant to participate based on
negative past experiences of working with an
unproductive or very difficult peer, having had to
carry more than their fair share of the workload, or
having received a grade that they felt did not reflect
their level of contribution to a group project.
