  • We will continue to actively implement a technical, social and intellectual infrastructure that ensures equity of access to learning, information, and information technologies while recognizing that investments in learning contribute to overall competitiveness and the economic and social well-being of the nation.
  • We will continue to support the educational demands of knowledge workers. This includes restructuring library resources, administrative systems, networks, policy, etc. to meet the needs of our current and future populations
distance distributed learning defined
Distance & Distributed Learning Defined
  • Distance Education is a process that connects learners with a system of distributed learning resources designed to meet the educational needs of a learner.
  • This instructional delivery system is characterized by the separation of time and/or space between instructor and learner, among learners, and/or between learners and learning resources.
  • One or more media provides for interactions between these participants.
  • Distance Learning can most easily be understood when the teaching and learning process is viewed from a time and place perspective.

seven driving principles of the new age in education
Seven Driving Principles of the New Age in Education
  • Technology…is here to stay. From student motivation to professional development, for the first time in history, technology is affecting every aspect of education.
  • Content…is key. Top-quality, interactive, Web-based learning programs are essential to ensuring that all students -- children and adults -- can receive the best educational content anytime, anywhere.
  • Distance…has disappeared. Now educators and students can connect instantly with peers and experts all over the globe.
  • Time…is crumbling. In a world of instantaneous connection, there is a high value on the ability to teach and learn in real time.

  • LATA (Local Access and Transport Area) is a term in the U.S. for a geographic area covered by one or more local telephone companies, which are legally referred to as Local Exchange Carriers (LEC)
  • A connection between two local exchanges within the LATA is referred to as intraLATA.
  • A connection between a carrier in one LATA to a carrier in another LATA is referred to as interLATA.
  • InterLATA is long-distance service. The current rules for permitting a company to provide intraLATA or interLATA service (or both) are based on the Telecommunications Act of 1996.

benefits to students
Benefits to Students
  • The Electronic Campus increases students’ options dramatically. Courses not previously available where a student lives or at a time that was convenient may in fact now be available. Students in the most remote areas will have access to courses and programs that have not been readily available.
  • Students will have the confidence of knowing that the courses offered via the Electronic Campus are pledged to follow the Principles of Good Practice.
  • Students will be able to compare courses, methods of instruction, how courses are delivered and costs.
  • The Electronic Campus will provide a central point of information and an "orderly electronic marketplace amidst the chaos of a booming Internet."
benefits to states
Benefits to States
  • The Electronic Campus will provide the opportunity for more education for more citizens. The Electronic campus will increase access for students to needed information on educational courses and programs.
  • The Electronic Campus could allow states, through cooperative development, to jointly share in creating needed courses and programs - the "electronic wheel" will not have to be reinvented each time.
  • Areas previously isolated from the best of educational opportunities will no longer be cut off because of geography.
  • Quality educational programs available in any SREB state can be just as accessible to the students in all SREB states.
  • The Electronic Campus will provide increased economic development opportunities for all SREB states. Southern Regional Education Board states involved are: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
