Education systems There may be circumstances that prevent the person from studying at the university as a rest, and go to it like the rest of his colleagues on a daily basis. Therefore, two distance learning systems, one called distance education and the other one, have been created. Many people confuse the two concepts. , As well as the differences between the two systems. The university enrollment system started more than 30 years ago in many countries, notably Saudi Arabia. The aim was to encourage students to obtain university degrees despite their circumstances, which may prevent them from daily work at the university like the rest of the students. So-called distance education. Modern communication has made it possible to learn online, but there have been some barriers to both systems in terms of the ability of companies to rely on these graduates, who were not like the rest of the students, and obtained their degrees through learning limited to some visits to the university, and with This problem was resolved through the issuance of some government decisions that established the rights of these students to obtain their jobs suitable for their university achievement. The difference between distance learning and enrollment To illustrate the difference between distance learning and enrollment, we will identify the difference between the two systems at the moment: The distance learning system depends on the student’s study of the materials through the Internet, attending the lectures two or three times a week according to the schedule set by the student and the number of days specified by the week. In the system of enrollment, the lectures are conducted electronically for three weeks only during the semester, All materials are recorded through lectures, and attended through the Internet. In the distance learning system, the student is required to attend his lectures first-hand, and is counted absent in the absence of these lectures and to submit the required tests, while in the system of affiliation can attend the student at any time or registration and save for later. In the distance learning system there are duties that apply to the student on the University’s website. There are also duties to be solved and delivered. In the affiliation system, there is an intensive course for the materials to be present at the university. The grades are given to the student in the distance learning system. There are 30 marks for attendance and duties, and 70 marks for the final exam. In the enrollment system, there is only one examination of the material at the end of the semester
The concept of education is clear and constant throughout the ages, where education requires a source of information whether a person or a book or any other source and the existence of the recipient of information is the student, but the changing thing in education is the way to obtain information, Which included the development of the means of education, especially in recent times, which is called the era of technology, where the student can choose the appropriate means of education among many methods, and these methods are common nowadays is distance education, and called this name for being Depends on communication between students and teacher remotely Internet service, worth mentioning that the seller was an old student and travel long distances in order to get information.
Types of distance education
There are two types of distance learning, the first requires that all students and teachers enter their own accounts through the Internet in order to attend the lesson, and during the lesson the teacher to give information directly to students either by voice alone or sound and image, The lesson includes written conversations between students or between students and teachers.
As for the second type, it does not require the presence of students at the same time of the lesson, since the teacher’s lessons remain registered and can be heard by the student during a specific time and often a week, this type of distance education is more flexible and accept from Before the pupils, because it gives them free freedom, and this type is also far from the traditional way of education.
Extent of Distance Learning
Distance education is not only a means of obtaining information, but it is also one of the means to obtain scientific degrees recognized by many educational institutions. There are many institutions and educational organizations that have licenses to provide distance education, It should be noted that these educational means are subject to supervision in order to ensure the quality of the methods used in providing information and to ensure that there is no circumvention in order to obtain scientific and scientific certificate
