What is distance learning?

Distance learning is a type of interactive or blended teaching and learning method between a teacher and a student. Yet it differs from regular interactive teaching because of its various online education techniques. Earlier, distance education involved a correspondence course via post. Nowadays it is mainly carried out through the medium of distributed learning, e-learning, m-learning, online learning, virtual classroom and so forth. Hence, multiple devices are necessary for effective distance learning. Due to its flexible approach, it is popular among many students all over the world.  Distance learning can be done via video conferencing, can be synchronized or unsynchronized, open scheduled, hybrid distance education, computer-based education and fixed time online course, which is the most common type.
