The system of linking students, teachers and learning resources when they are not in the same location is called “distance learning”. These courses often include recorded lectures from professors teaching in their classrooms at the school to their traditional students, discussion forums where students can post assignments, communicate about the material with each other, ask questions to professors and other students, and much more.
Last year, Tec de Monterrey in Mexico, Universidad de los Andes in Colombia, and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile came together for La Tríada — a first-of-its-kind collaboration that enables their combined 150,000 students to share access to 100 online courses available from the three institutions.
