Lecturerswould teach from lecterns in front of the class and you would write term papers in the universitylibrary or other study venues.If you didnt want to travel to the West Coast you had one alternative in the form ofcorrespondence learning whereby youd be receiving instructional packages from the West CoastUniversity Panam through your mail.

In addition, feedback was very slow and there was practically no one-on-oneinteraction between the learner and the teacher.Fast forward to today and we now have great e-learning opportunities made possible by theinternet.
