How Can You Facilitate Development of a Distance Education Program?

Within any organization the one thing that remains constant is change and the need for change. Institutions and individuals must remain adaptable or their survival will never be guaranteed (Learning and Teaching Support Network, 2003). Educational institutions are a prime example of a new paradigm being implemented in the form of distance education. It is becoming a go to strategy with the sole purpose of creating greater student opportunities thus educators have an inherent need to prepare for that change (Hoehn & Redline, 2005).
