Distance learning means educating students who are not physically present at school. They can study at their own pace, at the place of their choice, and without face-to-face contact with a teacher. Courses that are conducted partly through distance education and partly on-site are usually referred to as hybrid education.

Distance education has gone through several stages of development. The first distance education course was provided by Sir Pitman in the 1840s. He taught a system of shorthand by mailing texts transcribed into shorthand on postcards and receiving transcriptions from his students in return for correction. The element of student feedback was a crucial innovation of Pitman’s system. This scheme became possible due to the introduction of uniform postage rates across England in 1840. This early beginning proved extremely successful. Nowadays there are plenty of online courses that offer distance education through the World Wide Web.
