Distance Learning Through the Ages

  • 1891: The University of Chicago began allowing students and teachers to work via the post office rather than a classroom. Eventually, the parties evolved to two-way radio transmissions and prerecorded TV broadcasts.
  • 1988: The federal Star Schools program awarded grants to rural schools to foster distance-education technologies with telecommunication companies.
  • 1995: The CyberSchool Project in Eugene, Ore., was launched to provide supplemental courses online.
  • 1997: Florida established the first statewide, Internet-based public high school.
  • November 2005: According to the North American Council for Online Learning, the United States supported 32 virtual charter schools, three online home-school programs and 53 public, noncharter virtual schools across 42 states.
