The main difference between traditional distance education and modern distance education is different educational technologies used in distance education. Traditionally, radio and television are used for distance education. Though system of satellite education still plays a significant role in distance education, it is not as effective and efficient as the distance education system based on computers and network. The Internet accelerates the rate of information delivery. Moreover, the volume of information is much larger than that radio and televisions can offer. The time and place for learning in modern distance education is more flexible.
