—Broadly, the beginning of Distance Education for
Computers dates back to 18th Century due to the phenomenal
advancement and innovation in transportation and
communication heralded by industrial revolution. DEC as
alternative model of education started when technology made
it feasible to separate teacher and learner from a fixed place, at
a fixed time, to meet a fixed person, in order to be trained.
Started with correspondence mode, DEC is now agreed to
have undergone notably four other stages namely multimedia
mode, tele-learning model, flexible learning model and
interactive flexible learning model. The proliferation suffices to
prove why DEC has been so widely accepted in the western
hemisphere and why European countries have established and
recognized this method through EDEN.
