Distance Education

  1. 1. Assesment Presentation
  2. 2. Distance education 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 classroom.
  3. 3.  With distance learning courses, students can complete their course work from just about anywhere, provided there’s a computer and internet connection. This allows students to work when and where it is more convenient for them without having to squeeze in scheduled classes to an already busy life.
  4. 4.  Taking a course online can be one way to cut down on costly gas or public transportation. Since students can often work from home to complete their class assignments, both time and money are saved in cutting out the trips to and from class.
  5. 5.  Prices for online courses are generally cheaper than their on-campus counterparts and you won’t have to worry about commuting, moving or getting meal plans on campus, some additional benefits to learning from home.
  6. 6.  If the classroom environment is what you love most about learning you may want to take a step back and reconsider distance learning. You’ll likely get some interaction on chat rooms, discussion boards and through email, but the experience will be quite different than traditional courses.
  7. 7.  Not everyone is an ideal candidate for online learning. If you know you have problems with motivation, procrastination and needs lots of individual attention from an instructor you may want to think long and hard before enrolling in an online learning program.
  8. 8.  While a majority of employers will, there are some who still see a stigma attached to distance learning. Realize that your online degree may not be the ideal tool for some job fields or for future learning.
  9. 9.  Incremental evaluation sets periods of evaluation for distance education programs. During these periods, evaluators collect program data and analyze it. This type of evaluation is practical and has the benefit of being able to use methods of evaluation for traditional education. It's much like the evaluation of traditional education programs.
  10. 10.  Formative evaluation's purpose is to improve the learning process. Data is collected during the distance learning program's design and development. The evaluation happens before the program is fully established, so formative evaluation allows these programs to improve their systems before they're solidified.
  11. 11.  Summative and formative evaluations are nearly mutually exclusive. When using summative evaluation, evaluators analyze the cumulative effect of the distance learning program. The evaluators observe the program's end result and compare it to the program's stated goals.
  12. 12.  Distance learning evaluation can also take the form of case studies, where evaluators limit themselves to reviewing an individual distance learning program. The program isn't studied. Instead, evaluators analyze a program's audience or students and generalize the results to distance learning. For example, a case study might follow a newly established educational television program's audience and chart their improvement. These results would help determine the program's funding level and method of teaching.
