Synopsis

In Cyberschools: An Education Renaissance, author and educational entrepreneur Glenn R. Jones identifies several influences that are forcing change in educational institutions and addresses how online learning and electronic delivery of information can be critical tools to assist educational, business and community leaders and individuals in making these changes. He also examines: the rising costs of higher education; the changing characteristics of the adult student; the development of a global learning community; the transformation of the world to a knowledge society; and how the Internet and television can provide a less costly and more efficient means of providing education to a diverse student population. Cyberschools: An Education Renaissance is a good reference for anyone interested in the underlying fundamentals of distance learning, and also provides the reader with a number of successful distance learning programs currently available.
