NASA'S Digital Learning Network Teachers Earn Prestigious Award

HAMPTON, Va. -- The United States Distance Learning Association
recognized NASA's Digital Learning Network (DLN) for its superior
instructors by presenting the program with the Silver Award for
Distance Learning Teaching.

Seventeen agency instructors from across NASA's 10 field centers were
recognized for their performance. The DLN enables students, the next
generation of explorers, to connect with scientists, engineers and
researchers without leaving the classroom. The program uses
interactive videoconferencing to provide distance-learning events to
educate students through demonstrations and real-time interaction
with NASA experts at various locations across the agency.

NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., manages DLN for the
agency. For more information about NASA's Digital Learning Network,


"It is such an honor for NASA to be recognized for the teaching talent
that our DLN coordinators possess," said Jim Stofan, NASA's acting
associate administrator for Education. "We have always known they are
top quality and dedicated educators, and now so does the world of
distance learning through this recognition."

The United States Distance Learning Association, based in Boston,
created the awards to acknowledge major accomplishments in distance
learning. The awards honor professionals and their programs that have
achieved extraordinary results through the use of online,
videoconferencing, and satellite technologies.
