Currently, risk to privacy on the Internet poses a serious problem. So various personal information is treated online. This problem is also prevalent in distance learning systems since the existing privacy function is not sufficient to ensure safety. In this paper, we propose an architecture for privacy after considering a learner's communication for distance learning. We define privacy as a guaranteed learning method wherein a learner's information is treated as confidential. We have implemented the prototype and performed several experiments. We report the results in this paper.
