The main purpose of this paper is to create digital media design, production, and programming standards for Enhanced TV (ETV) in distance education milieus. ETV, commonly known as Interactive Television, provides increased learner control over viewing and interacting virtual educational settings. This essential aspect of ETV emphasizes two-way collaborations among distance learners in virtual milieus. Also, in this paper a framework for ETV applications in distance education will be developed and discussed to ensure learning purposes for not only educators who use and integrate distance online activities into their traditional courses, but also educators who design and deliver courses via distance online. This developed framework provides necessary and useful information to distance education producers developing ETV programming and methods and improves their understanding about ETV technology applications in virtual milieus.
