Abstract

Abstract: Distance education is the largest growth area in education. New trends and practices are underway that are just now appearing in the literature. This paper will review current trends and best practices in distance applications, assessment, attitudes, collaboration, concerns and challenges for faculty and students. A look back at trends and practices will provide the impetus for predicting future audiences and markets for distance education; a vehicle to expand services into underserved populations.
