Abstract:

This paper describes the rationale and structure of an innovative distributed learning environment in geography. In response to declining resources available to local academic units or departments and low availability of instructors, a regional geography class on Africa was delivered in a 'distributed' manner. Three Northern Virginia universities within a 50-mile radius offered the class, which was taught by one professor, visiting each location on a rotating basis every 3 weeks. All other material was delivered via the Web. Conclusions are made about the pedagogical role of distributed learning.
