Distance education can be delivered in a paced format similar to traditional campus based models in which learners begins and completes a race at the same time. Paced delivery is currently the most common mode of distance education delivery.
Alternatively, some institutions offer self-paced programs that allow for continuous enrollment and the length of time to complete the course is set by the learner's time, skill and commitment levels. Paced races may be offered in either synchronous mode, but self-paced races are almost always offered asynchronously. Each delivery model offers both advantages and disadvantages for students, teachers and institutions.
Kaplan and Haenlein classify distance learning in the group of the participants: 1) MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses): Open-access online race (ie, without specific participation restrictions) ; 2) SPOCs (Small Private Online Courses): Online course that only offers a limited number of places and therefore requires some form of formal enrollment; 3) SMOCs (Synchronous Massive Online Courses): Open-access online course that allows for unlimited participation. 4) SSOCs (Synchronous Private Online Courses): Online course that only offers a limited number of places and requires students to be "present" at the same time (synchronously).
