The first official record for a distance learning course was an advertisement in the Boston Gazette. It was penned by a Caleb Phillips offering private correspondence courses in Short Hand in 1728. Since then, distance learning has been slowly gaining momentum and, with the widespread availability of the internet, has now become a major way of distributing education for millions of people worldwide.
If you have ever followed instructions in a manual, read or watched something to learn something new, you have engaged in distance learning. If you’ve done this using the internet, you have done it online. Anyone with an internet connection can access the huge amount of information available to learn anything from beekeeping to house building.
Demand for distance learning is only increasing and with the advent of smart phones and tablets, an entire degree can be available at arms reach at any time you require.
