istance education and e-learning is a modern program of academic training,
addressing different categories of consumers interested in academic training
and permanent professional improvement or professional re-conversion.
Methodologically, distance education and e-learning is a concept that requires
an approach different from the classical one of education and studying. It
involves the efficient turning to good account of different channels of communication
available to each student (mail, teleTel, fax, radio, TV).
“Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu has promoted and developed this new higher-education
program since 1998. A considerable experience has been acquired both at an
institutional level and with regard to those directly involved in it (teaching
staff, secretaries). The students enrolled in the distance education programs
benefit from modern facilities, a fact that accounts for the high quality of
their education and training.
There is no difference whatsoever between the students enrolled in distance
learning programs and those enrolled in classical programs of study as far
as the educational process is concerned. They all benefit from the same rights
and have the same professional obligations.
