Abstract

Various models of distance learning are being used for deaf students at post-secondary levels. The web-based distance learning that enhances classroom instruction, synchronous videoconferencing that supports staff development, admissions and recruitment efforts, and desktop videoconferencing are valid modes for deaf student. Included in the discussion are recommendations for innovative uses of distance learning with deaf students, and the opportunity for continuing this discussion through the use of distance learning technologies.

Reasons for using multimedia tools in remote education system (Pedagogical): The numbers given figure below summarizes the reasons as:

The trainees learn 1060 items they read The trainees learn 2060 items they hear The trainees learn 3060 items they see The trainees learn 5060 items they see and hear The trainees learn 7060 items they experience The trainees learn 9560 items they teach others

These figures are compared to a few education points (of 12000 cases); however, the above-mentioned subjects are a case study in explaining status of educational technology.

Distance learning offers new and continuing educational opportunities for students throughout the world. New technologies are modifying traditional delivery systems of distance learning by offering new means of communication and interaction. Sometimes students can access this type of education readily with equipment and software they already own or can readily locate. It
