Remote Learning

Remote learning occurs when the learner and instructor, or source of information, are separated by distance and cannot meet in a traditional classroom setting. Information is typically transmitted via technology (email, discussion boards, video conference, audio bridge) so that no physical presence in the classroom is required; otherwise, it would be hybrid or blended learning. Remote learning can occur synchronously or asynchronously. Also referred to as distance education, virtual instruction or remote training.
