Psychology Press, 1998 - 212 páginas

From this unique perspective, an adopting a global viewpoint, he reviews the opportunities & dangers that the knowledge media (the new generation of technologies resulting from the convergence of computing, telecommunications & the learning sciences) pose for all universities in both developing & industrialized countries. He draws on his background of university leadership in both Europe & North America to suggest how higher education should develop strategies using technology to enhance academic performance. The book describes the strategies, goals & lessons to be learned from the world's eleven distance-teaching "mega-universities" (who between them enroll 2.8 million students at a fraction of the per-student cost of U.S. colleges); & shows how institutions, from small to large campus universities, can cut costs, encourage.
