Keywords:online learning, distance education, e-learning, distance learning, technology-enhanced learning, teleteaching, telelearning
The development of on-line educational structures and processes has led to new opportunities for the delivery of education in and between rural Canadian communities. Within digital Intranets it has been possible to develop virtual classes, which have encouraged collaboration in teaching, learning and the development of knowledge-building communities. Underpinning these developments has been a need to develop pedagogy appropriate for teleteaching and telelearning.
