What is Distance Learning?
Distance Learning is a formalized teaching and learning system specifically designed to deliver course content over the internet, without the need to attend a learning institution. Distance learning is flexible to meet learners needs yet maintains the same rigor as a traditional campus course.
What is Blackboard?
Blackboard is a Web-based course management system that allows faculty to create Web sites for courses that enhance or deliver course instruction. Students enrolled in courses supported with Blackboard have access to support materials posted by the instructor (using syllabi and assignments), links to Web-based materials, discussion boards and chat rooms, and online quizzing. Each instructor customizes his or her course, using a variety of “tools” as mentioned above.
