Types of Distance Education

Online education utilizes the internet and videoconferencing to create learning communities. Study materials may be found via websites and online study resource supplements. Email, bulletin boards, forums and chat rooms can be used to interact with other students who may be preparing for the same subjects as you. Online learning can enhance other forms of education. It may take place in the classroom or workplace; it may be performed at home, at military education centers, or at a public library.
