Post-secondary institutions have long utilized distance learning to expand the base of students. The traditional paper correspondence course has served as a basis for post-secondary education to reach students physically separated from the campus. Recent increases in technology, specifically in networking, have allowed post-secondary institutions to advance the use of distance learning in educational programs. This study identifies the current utilization of distance learning in the post-secondary education arena, particularly in hospitality management programs. It questions program directors in two and four year post-secondary hospitality management programs to determine the respective differences in distance learning activities. Specific areas of interest include the number of distance learning courses taught, the attitudes toward distance learning, and the competencies necessary of a distance learning instructor.
