I've heard very good things about the Swinburne course mentioned by Al above, they'd be my no.1 choice, easily !.

While not "Distance Learning" as such MITOpenCourseWare have a Introduction to Astronomy available online for downloading HERE

Also the The Planetary Society did a course with Caltech a couple of years ago and the webcasts are still available HERE .

Both free 8)

Hope this is of use.

Snakebite,
Until you find the course you are looking for a great book is called "Astronomy For Dummies". don't let the title fool you it's a great book which I found very useful and I still refer to it from time to time.
