The American Journal of Distance Education (AJDE) is the internationally
recognized journal of research and scholarship in the field of American
distance education.

Distance education describes teaching-learning relationships where the
actors are geographically separated and communication between them is
through technologies such as audio and video broadcasts, teleconferences and
recordings; printed study guides; and multimedia systems. The principal
technology of current research interest is the World Wide Web, and subfields
of distance education therefore include on-line learning, e-learning,
distributed learning, asynchronous learning and blended learning.

With increasing numbers of individuals and institutions becoming involved in
these various forms of distance education, the AJDE offers a solid
foundation of valuable research-based knowledge about all aspects of the
pedagogy of the field.

Peer reviewed articles provide reports on the latest findings in such areas

* building and sustaining effective delivery systems;
* course design and application of instructional design theories
* facilitating interaction between students and with instructors;
* factors influencing student achievement and satisfaction;
* the changing roles of faculty and changes in institutional culture;
* administrative and policy issues including cost-effectiveness and

AJDE encourages the submission of articles about methods and techniques of
teaching at a distance, about learning, and about management and
administration but also encourages authors to write about policies,
theories, and values that drive distance education. Articles should be based
on research, although all methods and approaches to research are welcome.
Authors are advised to ensure that their work is appropriately grounded in a
review of existing literature.
