Distance learning is becoming increasingly common in the higher education sector. Student flexibility and inability of students to access education in remote regions are the main drivers of remote learning. There are many tools available that enable remote learning to reach geographically isolated and remote students as well as to provide extra flexibility to local students. This chapter explores current and emerging tools for flexible remote learning. Specifically, this chapter looks at current and new tools used in remote learning as effective tools for university students as well as graduate continuing learning. The tools, benefits, and models of remote learning are discussed. The objective of the chapter is to discuss the current and emerging tools in remote learning and its importance in emerging technologies and work-integrated learning in allied health.
