Distance learning in higher education involves a continuum of technologies ranging from teleconferencing to video streaming. The United States is approaching a crisis in personnel shortages in rehabilitation counseling and education. Because of these shortages, higher education is called upon to produce counselors in an abbreviated period of time. Thus, distance learning is recognized as an integral part of education, especially for adult learners. This article provides an overview and discussion of the relevance of distance and accelerated learning in rehabilitation and higher education.
