Lifelong Learning

Patricia Cross' 1981 book, Adults as learners described three features of lifelong learning:

Distance education has created a major shift in how educators and students think about teaching and learning. By allowing students to learn in locations and times that are more convenient, distance education opens educational opportunity to previously unreachable populations. It also enables more people to extend the period of their education from a limited number of schooling years to a lifelong learning process.

Lifelong learning is closely related to adult learning.
