  • Description: This article revisits research conducted in 2014-2015 for a brief produced by the Conseil supérieur de l’éducation, and highlights four characteristics of the development of distance education in the Québec university system. In light of observed trends in Ontario, British Columbia, the United States and France, this article shows that Québec tends to distinguish itself by the fact that distance education : 1) is not the target of specific state-based action ; 2) is not promoted as a means of meeting the challenges relating to university funding ; 3) is not largely based on the practice of inter-university collaboration ; and 4) massive open online courses (MOOCs) are clearly considered outside the regular curriculum. These characteristics may be explained by the relatively limited intervention of the State in university affairs and by the prevalence of “institutional individualism” rather than overarching vision of the Québec university system.
