What is DISTANCE EDUCATION?
Distance Education — home based learning and home schooling are all interchangeable terms used to describe the option of educating your children independently, away from a standard day school classroom. In years gone by this was only available for those in remote areas who did not have access to a local school and students used facilities like “School of the Air”. Since then, learning options have expanded allowing families to access distance education for a variety of reasons, from both city and country regions. Home based learning solutions like Virtual classrooms are taking learning into the future here at Riverside Distance Education.
