From the Paper:

"In defining distance learning its' best to look at what industry experts have to share in terms of insight. Sloan Consortium (2005) in its landmark report, Growing By Degrees: Online Education in the United States, 2005 explored the definition of distance learning. In its definition the Sloan Consortium created a table showing the progression of distance learning by the proportion of content delivered online. Table 1 provides the Sloan Consortiums' key insights in the definition of distance learning."
