Abstract or description

In the field of distance learning, presentation and interaction with materials must be approached in an alternative way to when students are regularly attending the campus, and on site at teaching locations. When a student is on campus, they are learning in direct contact with the Higher Education (HE) institution and academically trained members of staff that can facilitate their learning with their direct knowledge and supporting materials. However, a student who is off campus, and receives the course programme through means of distance learning, learns through another channel, and must therefore have materials that cater to the fact they are in a remote location.

Distance learning does not always meet the requirements of Engineering and Technology courses where the physical classroom attendance is mandatory to complete the course.

This paper discusses the important issues related to the distance learning in Engineering and Technology courses which are required to fulfill the professional institution requirements for accreditation.
