Celebrating World Distance Learning Day

World Distance Learning Day brings awareness to learning outside the traditional, physical classroom. Whether it’s a fully online or hybrid program, this flexibility allows students of all ages to reach their goals. 

History of World Distance Learning Day

In the 1960s, Open Universities first introduced the idea of distance learning, but it wasn’t until 1984 that the first fully online course was available. Many students jumped at the opportunity, and the trend is still in place today. 

World Distance Learning Day was established to showcase the various resources available to students and to celebrate the innovative ways distance learning has become possible.

Above all, quality online curriculums have made this possible, and several institutions around the globe have adopted this method into their own teachings like Bryan University. At Bryan, our learning technology is based on research to ensure you learn faster and retain more.
