Distance Learning in Ohio

In 1997, video distance learning began to make an impact on education in Ohio through funding contributions made by Ohio's large local exchange telephone companies as a result of various stipulations and agreements with the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO). By 2003, a statewide network of support staff and agencies were meeting monthly to promote, develop and encourage the use of video conferencing. In 2011, this group voted to become an official organization. The Ohio Distance Learning Association developed a charter and became an affiliate of the national organization, United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA). As a state member of the USDLA, the mission is the same; to promote the use of interactive video teaching and learning in schools.
