The United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA) released a white paper titled, “Enabled By Broadband, Education Enters A New Frontier.” The paper highlights the successes and growth of distance learning, and suggests policy measures to ensure that barriers to continued growth are removed. “In order for 21st century distance learning opportunities to continue to flourish and allow more consumers immediate availability to convenient and affordable education, immediate access to affordable broadband must continue to grow,” said Dr. John G. Flores, Executive Director of the USDLA. “This paper highlights the measures we believe need to be taken in order to advance online learning and opportunity; and broadband access is a huge component of that need.”
