Models for Virtual Learning
Boston University, USA
The American Council on Education estimates that 85% of traditional colleges and universities offers distance-accessible courses. Boston University has been an early player in this arena, and in this paper we synthesize two models for virtual learning on the basis of actual courses that took place. Also we focus on the authors experience with communicating at a distance in the context of credit and non-credit courses.
