Definition 2: ACCJC Definition of Distance Learning 

The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges Western Association of Schools and Colleges has defined distance learning, for the purposes of accreditation review, as a formal interaction designed for learning in which the interaction principally occurs when the student is separated by location from the instructor, resources used to support learning, or other students. Distance learning may employ correspondence study, audio, video, or computer technologies. Educational interactions delivered through these means may occur on campus as well as off campus. These interactions may be synchronous or asynchronous.
