Distance & Accelerated Learning Mission Statement
"To develop and deliver universally accessible, academically sound, and technologically advanced instruction at a distance, while supporting student success, responding to community needs and promoting faculty innovation."
is Distance Learning?
education or distance learning is a style of delivering education and
instruction to students who are not physically present in a traditional setting
such as a classroom. Distance learning allows students to learn when the source
of information is separated from them by distance, time or both. Distance
learning often involves heavy use of technology to coordinate course lessons,
activities, assignments, exams, etc. Distance education courses that require a
physical on-site presence for any reason (including taking exams) have been
commonly referred to as “hybrid” or “blended.”
