Abstract

Distance Learning – Enrichment (DL-E) provides the potential for any educator to make their classroom a global village. This chapter will trace the history, development and actual examples of DL-E in action in Hawaii and the Pacific/Asian region. Basic information that contrasts DL-E from traditional distance learning programs is presented. Definition and examples of the concept are provided using experiences in the Pacific region. To encourage broader use of DL-E a section on alternative modes and techniques is presented along with references and entries in the glossary of terms.
