ABSTRACT
In the modern society with changeable information technology learning and applications, students could acquire information application knowledge, which is not worse than those taught by teachers in classrooms, through the Internet, distance conference, and e-learning. Traditional instruction therefore is facing great challenges. When measuring the distance learning efficiency of universities with DEA, appropriate inputs and outputs should be selected for effectively evaluating the system performance of DMUs. From the DEA results, the distance learning efficiency of Xian Jiaotong University, Huazhong University of Science & Technology, Jiangnan University, Fujian Normal University, Beijing Normal University, Central South University, Chongqing University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and Central China Normal University do not reach 1, not achieving the optimum, while Beijing Language and Culture University achieve the optimum.
