Trends in Educational Technology 2000 National University 2000

a. A research paper on educational trends.
The cost of operating a vast disconnected national educational system is becoming irreleveant, inefficient and uneconomical. Education needs to be more accessible, less expensive, up to date, relevant, tailored to fit, learner-centered, and market driven. Information is zipping around the earth faster than ever before and many institutions are in the fast lane. Why must we hang on to these relics of the past, blackboards, textbooks, lectures, classrooms, schedules and teacher-student ratios? The Internet will be the Education Platform of the future.
