The Development and Implementation of a Global Network for Eurasia Educational Service Using Electronic Mail.
The purpose of this study was to choose an appropriate network provider for educational consultants and to develop and implement the network at Eurasia Educational Services (EES) using electronic mail (e-mail). The following eight steps were undertaken: literature review, scanning and selecting of provider criteria, decision-making, participant assessment, a workshop, mentoring, evaluation, and intra-organizational LISTSERV. The provider deemed AT&T EasyLink services most appropriate. The workshop, orientation materials, and mentoring process resulted in the initiation of a global network for EES using e-mail. Once a provider was determined, implementation among new users appeared possible with a single-event workshop, detailed orientation materials, and a mentoring arrangement. E-mail had a significant impact upon an international educational consulting agency with the most definitive difference being financial. The recommendations included publishing the summary tables of possible network providers, informing the parent organization of the impact of e-mail networking, and using workshop/mentoring (both for EES and client institutions in Eurasia) to initiate other technological tools. Questionnaires and a compendium of electronic resources are appended. (Contains 86 references.) (TMK)
