Distance learning and social change
Distance learning is a way to provide education and training to people who are separated by distance. It is also a way for people who want to pursue higher education or professional qualifications but can't afford it or live in the area where the course is offered. Distance learning has been around for centuries, but it has only been in recent decades that technology has made distance learning an effective and convenient way of teaching.
Social change is the process of bringing about social, economic, and political change; the process of transforming society into a more just, equitable, and sustainable form. Social change may be driven by efforts to eradicate poverty, discrimination, and oppression; often part of human rights activism or social justice activism.
Distance learning has become an essential part of social change. This is because it empowers people in remote places to get an education and provides a way for people to learn about the world and other cultures. Distance learning can be done through radio, television, telephone, or the internet.
Distance learning has been around for a long time. But it is only recently that the internet and social media have made it possible to create distance learning programs that are not just about watching a video or reading a book but also about connecting with other people who are taking the same course. The internet and social media have changed how we learn, share knowledge, and create social change.
