Access to Higher Education and Distance Learning
Perhaps more than any other educational approach, distance learning has had, from the outset, the prime mission of increasing access to education. This meant dealing with constraints that, over the course of time, have become assets: geographic distance, differences in time, teaching distance, and media constraints. These are the issues that this article invites us to discover. Moreover, it brings out the challenges still facing this type of training as well as the improvements yet to come. In short, the author paints an overall picture of this teaching approach while presenting evidence that it plays a fundamental role in terms of access to education and that it extends the orientations of the Parent report. As a result, readers can grasp the scope and popularity of this approach to learning.
