  7. 7. Defining Distance Education <ul><li>What is distance education or distance learning? </li></ul><ul><li>Distance education is defined as …. learning is most easily defined as an educational model where the student and the teacher are in locations different from one another while the instruction is taking place. The use of technology is an inherent part of the distance learning process. Technology such as computers, the Internet, televisions, telephones, and mobile phones are used to bridge the gap between teacher and student, bringing material from one to the other and back again as the learning process takes place. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Defining Distance Education <ul><li>Distance education or distance learning? </li></ul><ul><li>Is a field of education that focuses on teaching methods and technology with the aim of delivering teaching, often on an individual basis, to students who are not physically present in a traditional educational setting such as a classroom. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Defining Distance Education <ul><li>History of distance education and technology </li></ul>The history of distance education could be tracked back to the early 1700s in the form of correspondence education, but technology-based distance education might be best linked to the introduction of audiovisual devices into the schools in the early 1900s. The first catalog of instruction films appeared in 1910 (Reiser, 1987) and in 1913, Thomas Edison proclaimed that, due to the invention of film, &quot;Our school system will be completely changed in the next ten years&quot; (Saettler, 1968, p. 68).
  10. 10. Defining Distance Education <ul><li>History of distance education and technology </li></ul>The 1940s saw great interest in television by educators but little action (Adams, 1958), and by 1948 only five U.S. educational institutions were involved in television with Iowa State being the first on the air
  11. 11. Defining Distance Education <ul><li>History of distance education and technology </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile learning </li></ul><ul><li>Video conference </li></ul>Arguably the first instance of mobile learning goes back as far as 1901 when Linguaphone released a series of language lessons on WAX. This was followed up in later years as technology improved, to cover compact cassette tapes ,8 track tape and CD
  12. 12. Defining Distance Education <ul><li>History of distance education and technology </li></ul><ul><li>Video conference </li></ul>Early studies by educators tended to show that student achievement from classroom television was as successful as from traditional face-to-face instruction. A study by Parsons (1957) showed only borderline differences in achievement, and Lapore and Wilson (1958) offered research showing that learning by television compared favorably with conventional instruction.
