Advances in technology are making Web-based education (WBE) a reality, but there are still many questions that need to be answered. Can traditional universities do a good job of WBE. What are the roles of instructors? Administrators? Students? What class size is feasible/relevant/optimal in WBE? How should students be evaluated in WBE? It is necessary for educators and trainers to constantly enhance their understanding of the issues, trends and opportunities associated with the area and its related technologies and their impact on educational systems, programs and particularly, students. These and other questions are answered in this book.
