The Evolution of Distance Education: Implications for Instructional Design on the Potential of the Web. Part 3: K-12
TLRPTIL Volume 52, Number 5, ISSN 8756-3894
This article is the last of a three-part series on distance education. Part 1 focused on Training and Development; Part 2 on Higher Education. Distance education in the K-12 arena is often referred to as "virtual schooling" and learning through virtual schooling is one of the fastest growing areas for K-12 schools. Virtual schools offer distance education courses in basically two formats: (1) site-based--part of a traditional brick and mortar school; and (2) virtual high school/charter schools--typically non-site based. In this article, the authors discuss four potentially profound impacts these trends have on the field of instructional design (ID). These effects concern the student or learner population, research-based approaches, lack of trained professionals, and organizational change.
