About eLearning and distance learning

eLearning and distance learning is a form of education in which the main elements include physical separation of lecturers and students during instruction and the use of various technologies to facilitate student-lecturer communication. Distance learning typically focuses on students that are full-time workers, non-residents or individuals in remote regions who are unable to attend lectures. However, distance learning has become an established part of the educational world, with trends pointing to ongoing growth. In Zambian higher education alone, a huge number of students have benefited from eLearning and distance learning programmes.

There has been an increasing number of colleges and universities offering eLearning and distance learning opportunities in the country. Both students and institutions have embraced this programme with good reason. Institutions benefit by adding students without having to build lecture theatres and housing, and students get the advantages of being able to work where and when they choose.
