ABSTRACT
Although distance education gets an increasingly special attention, emphasis should be put on the importance of style and strategies that have the greatest impact on the quality of distance learning. This may involve different technologies used alone or in combination. As such, there must be made a series of decisions on choosing the most effective methods which respond best to the established goal. The emphasis is therefore put on the role of facilitator as opposed to the role of "provider" specific for the traditional system.
