Distance Learning Prospective Students

What is online/distance learning?  
Distance education is defined as a formal educational process in which the majority of the instruction in a course occurs when students and instructors are not in the same physical place.  An online/distance learning course may employ a variety of methods.  At CCC distance/online learning takes the form of internet courses using many different computer technologies.
