[Abstract]: Online delivery of education is both similar to and different from what has gone before. From the perspective of dealing with students remote from the campus, online education can be viewed as an extension or variation of distance education delivered through print and other media. However, unlike traditional distance education, the online medium permits frequent and immediate interaction among students and teachers. This lends it some of the qualities of face-to-face teaching. Depending upon whether an institution is making the transition to online teaching from face-to-face or traditional distance mode the challenges to be faced may differ. This paper considers some of those challenges and alternative ways of addressing them.
