Distance education , or distance learning , is A field of education that focuses on the pedagogy/andragogy, technology, and instructional systems design that is effectively incorporated in delivering education to students who are not physically "on site" to receive their education.
Distance education is defined as education that takes place when the instructor and student are separated by space and time. The gap between the two can be bridged through the use of technology - such as audio tapes, videoconferencing, satellite broadcasts and online technology - and/or more traditional delivery methods, such as the postal service.
Distance Learning is defined as a process of transferring knowledge to learners(students) who are separated from the instructor(teacher) by time and/or physical distance and are making use of technology components, such as the Internet, video, CD's, tapes, and other forms of technology to accomplish learning.
When we go to Google and write "Distance Learning" , we will get more results than the other "Distance Education" "Distance learning" =32,100,000 results "Distance Education" =14,900,000 results so Distance learning is more common term

Learning is knowledge gained through experience, and education is knowledge gained through teaching. Education is something that an individual gets from an outside source. On the other hand, learning is something that evolves in the inner self. So we prefer to use Distance Education term.
