We get a lot of questions about online learning and distance learning at AES. Most often, we're asked if our online learning programs are designed specifically for distance learning. When we say that our programs are for elearning, the next question we get is "What's the difference?" In a nutshell, the key difference between online learning and distance learning is geography. Students can be together with an instructor and use online learning, but distance learning implies that students and instructor are separated.

As a CTE curriculum developer and provider, the term "blended learning" is a big part of our daily dialog here at AES. It’s what we believe in, and it’s how we encourage teachers to use our curriculum. When teachers are reviewing our eLearning curriculum and we talk about blended learning, we are often asked questions like: “What is blended learning in CTE?” and “How are other CTE teachers successfully implementing blended learning in the classroom?”
