Distance Learning

Distance learning is established as the key trend in higher education whether as a full online institution or as a part of more traditional schools.  With their emphasis on technology, ease-of-access, and broad educational opportunities, distance learning programs need the resources of a strong student information system ready to meet their special and emerging needs.
