Distance education in the world.

Distance education over the world has a history of more than 100 years. But it gained popularity only after 1970’s.

Many countries like China, England, Japan, Russia, Spain, Kazakhstan (since a few recent years as well) and the USA use this method, especially in higher education.

For example, the Open University in England has more than 80 000 students who take about 140 courses per year. This university has 260 local teaching and 13 regional information centers.

Such factors as age, place and daily activity do not serve as limiting factors in distance education. Distance education has two main advantages over traditional classroom education. The first advantage is a solution to the problem of teaching staff shortage and the second one is the low cost of education which gives many people an opportunity to receive higher education.

It is a system of education for different people of any age. This education allows each student to have an individual scheme of study.
