Definition of Online Learning

Moore, Deane & Galyen (2011: 130) online learning as a more recent version of distance learning which improves access to educational opportunities for learners described as both nontraditional and disenfranchised, not only the accessibility of online learning but also its connectivity, flexibility and ability to promote varied interactions

Based on Zucker & Feldman (2000:7) online teaching and learning is faculty-delivered instruction via the Internet. Online instruction includes real-time (synchronous) and anytime, anywhere (asynchronous) interactions. Two parallel processes take place in an online environment: students become more active, reflective learners and students and teachers engage in learning through the use of technology and become more familiar with technology by using it. Online learning is most effective when delivered by teachers experienced in their subject matter. The best way to maintain the connection between online education and the values of traditional education is through ensuring that online learning is “delivered” by teachers, fully qualified and interested in teaching online in a web-based environment.

Online education can be defined as an approach to teaching and learning that utilizes Internet technologies to communicate and collaborate in an educational context.  This includes technology that supplements traditional classroom training with web-based components and learning environments where the educational process is experienced online.
