Technology is changing every aspect of our lives. We now access information instantly on multimedia CD-ROMs and via the Internet that less than five year ago would have taken hours of research. We use computers for communication, analysis, learning and entertainment. Our children and students are growing up in a world where they will live a computer dependent lifestyle. Technology itself is changing at a tremendous rate, and one industry that has to keep up with this pace is IT training industry. The Computer Education and Training are one of the main national objectives, keeping in view the rising need for quality computer professionals. A nation must develop new ways to educate this ever-changing work force by developing the best technologies to meet the unique needs of educators, students, professionals and support academic achievement. A strong partnership between educators and technology innovators is essential to achieve this. The age of information introduces new demands and requires reorganization. To reorganize the working methodology is to reorganize the process of learning.
