Historically, distance learning or distance education began as little more than “correspondence courses,” which promised an education in one’s own home as early as 1728 (Distance Learning, 2002). By the 1800s the concept of distance education could be found in England, Germany and Japan (ASHE Reader on Distance Education, 2002).
