Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Recent, advances in telecommunications technology have greatly expanded the possibilities for providing and accessing instruction. For example, satellite, and digital technologies facilitate electronic text transfer to move information quickly over long distances. Telecommunication technology systems can be linked together to form networks capable of simultaneously carrying voice, data, and video transmissions. Distance Education has become a growth industry in higher education (Wolcott, 1995). Currently technology developments are bringing about many changes in the way institutions are providing educational opportunities for students (Carter, 1996). No longer is the college campus the only location where students may go to get an education opportunity (Meyers, 1989). Today, many students may now take individual courses or actually complete degree programs from remote locations.
