An Exploratory Model of E-Education
The Internet opens up a new horizon not just for distance learning but for learning as a whole. It blurs the once clear distinction between the distance learning and the traditional learning since it is not another medium for distance but becomes a universal one for the whole learning. Thus, the Internet-based learning needs a new term, e-learning, since the term distance learning is no longer appropriate for this new learning environment. This paper presents an exploratory model of education in view of confusion of terms and definitions based on the old paradigm of distance learning. Furthermore, this model will contribute to clarification of newly emerging learning modes and potential of totally reengineered learning modes based on a new paradigm – e-education.
