Abstract

This paper investigates the transactional distance theory (TDT) published in 1972 by Michael G. Moore as the first pedagogical theory in distance education. Moore hypothesized that distance is a pedagogical, rather than geographic, phenomenon. TDT consists of three sets of “macro-factors”: dialogue, structure, and learner autonomy. This paper also summarizes investigations that used this theory in various distance learning environments.
