Distance Learning traditionally involved correspondence courses whereby the student corresponded with the school via post. Today it more typically involves online education. A distance learning program can be completely distance learning, or a combination of distance learning and traditional classroom instruction (this is known as blended learning). Massive open online courses (MOOCs), offering large-scale interactive participation and open access through the internet or other network technologies, are more recent developments in distance learning.
