Distance learning is the process of knowledge transfer to learners who are separated from the instructor by time and/or physical distance and utilizing technology components.

Presently distance learning uses emerging technologies to enhance traditional way of learning. Using satellite, computers, telephone, the Internet, interactive video conferencing and audio, distance learners can participate and share many different types of experiences that would not ordinarily be made available to them.
