Is online education offered?

The representatives for the following areas said YES:

Iowa - Recently the state has taken a step back on this issue and has now become a HOT topic.  This has created the necessity for a special committee assigned to propose rules regulating the on dash line delivery.  Concerns are "Instructor supervision " Transferability of Hours" "Monitoring the Student"" Will it be just the Theory" and "Just How Much Of a Hands On Program should be allowed  Online.  I suspect their some "Oversight" in the rules soon.
Maryland - We have a sections under reg. that pertains to offering a program in whole or in part by distance education.
Oregon
Ohio - It is very limited in the number of hours that can be used by the school.  No practical instruction and only 25% of a schools (state approved) theory curriculum there are other specific covenants that apply as well.
Virginia - Online for theory is OK.
Wyoming - Instuctor hours only, no more that 200 hours maybe aquired by means of board approved, distant learning program.  These must be related to topics listed in the rules.  All distance learning programs must be preappoved by the board.
