What is Distance Learning?
The primary purpose of distance learning at the University of Hawaiʻi's ten campuses is to extend the University's rich array of quality instructional resources to students anywhere in the state who are committed to higher education but are constrained by diverse factors which prevent their participation as regular on-campus students at the University of Hawaiʻi campus offering their program of choice.
Distance learning provides students with access to education through a network of various technologies. Instructor and students interact at a distance without having to be physically present in the same location. Distance learning provides students greater flexibility in achieving their educational goals through audio, video, and computer technologies.
