Distance education is not the same as online education. In our distance education courses, students are present in the classroom through audio/video technology. Distance students participate in class in real time, asking questions and contributing to the creation of knowledge in the classroom. Distance students even participate in simulation events at the Rise Center at Robert Morris University, acting as telemedicine consultants to the students who are assessing standardized patients.
