This project examines the impact of technology on the process of higher education and the impact of these advances on both students and faculty. Student demographics and academics qualities from thirty years ago are compared to those of modern students as reported by veteran and new faculty members. The impact of technology on the modern student is discussed, as are technology relevant changes in the university experience for students and faculty. The changes in the accessibility of college classes by nontraditional students due to multimedia and Internet technology is also discussed with respect to the changing nature of distance education, including emergence of teleconference courses, Internet based classes, and other alternatives to the traditional correspondence course.
