About

History

Back in the 1800s distance learning was by correspondence only. Potential students were sent workbooks and assignments in the mail and had to post them back to gain their qualifications. This method of study was pioneered by a visionary organisation called International Correspondence Schools (ICS) in Pennsylvania, USA.
