    We're not allowed to correct so much, so I'll just say that the sentence in question would be better this way:

    Recently, distance learning has been reaching a diverse and geographically dispersed audience not accessible through traditional classroom instruction.

    "Distance learning" is an expression that refers to instruction outside the classroom. What the sentence is saying is that distance learning has enabled education and continued education for a wide variety of people in many different locations – more so than classroom education, where people must come together and have the time and money to study in a traditional classroom setting.
