The Genesis of Distance Education
Distance Education is not a new phenomenon. Current online methodologies to deliver education at a distance began to gain traction in the 1990s, but the premise of formal education at a distance, or from home, has been part of the educational infrastructure for nearly two hundred years. This paper examines the evolution of distance education and the impact, both pro and con, in its early stages. In turn, it presents insights into the institutional opposition that current online education development has, and still faces.
