Abstract

The explosion of information technologies in the mid 1990s and the ensuing fast transformation of higher education from traditional, campus-based instruction to automated, web-based, distance learning raises a multitude of difficult issues, among them:

  • What kind of schools will our children attend in just a few years?
  • How will they learn?
  • Will they experience the human touch that is still so dear to our generation? This article addresses these issues. My vision of them may be problematic, but isn't so our future? "New educational systems will be created by technology-based teaching. They will eliminate geographical and jurisdictional boundaries, integrate academic and real-world concerns more closely, and give students wider and more affordable choices" (Sir Daniel, 1996).
