This paper explains that many professors dislike teaching distance learning courses because they feel that they can not get to know their students; however, many of these professors also have a fear of using new teaching technologies. The author points out that distant learning technology via the Internet includes a simple web site, an e-mail address plus the use of chat rooms or other on line get-togethers where students can share their thoughts and feelings. The paper concludes that university professors should be taught how to use technology correctly to ensure successful teaching of distance learning courses so that their abilities and wisdom can be utilized and imparted to various students via the Internet and other forms of distance learning.
