Currently the term “online education” produces about 2,240,000,000 results on a standard Google search. Advances in Internet technology have had transformative impacts on education with the use of webcasting, LMS, learning modules, and eBooks. DeMaria & Bongiovanni (2012) make the point that effective online education only occurs when approached as a new methodology with new tools rather than a “substitute for face-to-facetechniques”. While not necessarily a 'new' methodology, Competency based education aligns nicely with contemporary technology and learning models.
