Online or virtual education, which uses a computer as the primary mode of instructional delivery is no longer a fad in education. Access and equity are issues that are a part of any distance learning or online program and have been through the history of this approach to learning. Unfortunately, though three organizations have promulgated standards that address equity and access, many programs haven't yet found the ways of insuring those programs meet the standards, nor of preparing future teachers how to do so. This panel, whose members are in the process of writing a new publication on the issue, will provide basic guidance for teacher preparation programs and online education in general.
