Abstract

Online learning offers the opportunity to examine and rethink the teaching and learning enterprise in education broadly. Online learning can be conceived of as the new distance education, where issues such as interaction and dialogue are introduced back into the distance education model. However, regardless of education delivery mode-face-to-face, online, distance, or some combination through blended learning-teaching (and learning) is changing. Online learning, whether synchronous or asynchronous, offers a range of pedagogical practices previously unavailable in both distance and face-to-face higher education.
