How has distance-based learning changed through the ages?

The world of snail-mail, shorthand typing and correspondence courses is a far cry from today’s range of certified online courses, Skype language lessons and mobile app-based education.

Distance learning once meant completing assignments via post, or homework-based lessons in conjunction with weekly or monthly seminars. Now, exams can be taken online, students can communicate effectively through online platforms, and lab sessions can be attended through live streaming.

In 1892, the term "distance education" is first used in a pamphlet by the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the USA.The Distance Learning: A History of Flexibility infographic tracks distance learning growth from pre-revolutionary America to 21st Century Britain, where almost 400,000 students are currently engaged in distance learning courses. From lectures sent via phonograph and radio broadcast, to degrees delivered in the digital age, its evolution – and its reach – is staggering. Full-time professionals, housewives and husbands, teenagers, pensioners… members of all of these groups have felt the benefit of a distance learning course.
