A well defined activity which has elements: curriculum, registration, tutoring and tests but takes place via postal correspondence or electronic media, linking instructors or students who are not together in a classroom. For this there is interaction between the teacher and the student, although it doesn’t happen immediately but with a delay. When the activity is recognised by the National Framework of Qualifications it should be classified as formal education, otherwise as non-formal. Note: This provides detail additional to the definition of ‘Distance learning’ in level 1.
