Remote Desktop and Distance Learning
Education has increasingly become easier for the people. The advent of distance learning ensures that
people who are not able to follow regular courses in school are rescued via a remote learning facility.
Therefore, individuals can now learn at their comfort.
Distance learning makes use of modern technology to make learning easy, fun, and of higher quality.
Instead of the older methods of email-based correspondence, distance learning uses the internet as a
means of teaching and learning.
The asynchronous and synchronous communication
The asynchronous communication between the teacher and the students is done by streaming video or
audio presentations, online messages, e-mails, remote access software or voice conferencing. This
setting enables the students to listen to lectures at their own convenience.
The synchronous type requires that the whole class attend a live class session at the same time. This
type of technology is similar to the traditional teaching-learning style where the teacher and students
are physically present and actively involved. Remote desktop sharing and a few other online platforms
like web conferencing, instant messaging, and online presentations allow live interactions between a
group of individuals, such as the class setting. Such a class can exchange audio and video with web
