Distance learning

An approach to instruction and learning where the instructor and the learners are physically separate. While online learning, and e-learning, are similar to distance learning (and at times used interchangeably, especially in the era of COVID-19), the main distinction between them and distance learning is that they can be a complementary form of learning, in addition to traditional classroom settings or in-person interactions.
