learning: an academic perspective
learning and Today's Educational Environment
Dr. Thomas A. Pollack
A.J. Palumbo School of Business Administration
In this downloadable
article, Dr. Pollack offers background on what distance learning
is and discusses the reasons that Duquesne University has begun
offering classes using the medium. In doing so he cites national
trends toward lifelong learning, a growing competition for students,
an increased awareness of the need to supply widespread education
and a growing need to educate cost-effectively. Many of our customers
have found this article valuable, so we asked the authorís permission
to include it on our site.
We're offering the
paper as a Microsoft Word® 2.0 document that you can download.
It is 7 pages long and 27K.
We do want to make
one comment as a videoconferencing dealer: the equipment costs
Dr. Pollack mentions are rapidly decreasing, as competing manufacturers
(such as 3M) enter the field.
