Question by smrtcu111: What is the difference between open, distance and on-line education?
In my “Alternative Learning Processes” class we’ve engaged in a debate about the difference between open and distance education.

We cannot decide what is the main difference of these modalities and to make things worse if we add up the technology factor (using the Internet in open and distance courses) we end up more confused.

Help is needed and appreciated.
