Reflections on the meaning of distance education
Designing instruction for distance education (DE) requires understanding the meaning of distance education and its objectives, the stages that distance education passed through, the media and their characteristics, and the main issues in distance education. The importance of defining the meaning of distance education is that it may provide a good starting point to recognize its elements. In this post, I need my students to investigate the earlier and recent definitions of DE, think and reflect on different definitions, and post their points of view to this post.
