Survey of Educational Computing in the Pacific Rim.
Ah Mai, Karen L.
A survey of selected educational institutions within the Pacific Rim was taken to determine the degree of interest and level of expertise available for an international experiment in computer networking. From the data collected from the Pacific Rim institutions, it appears that the conditions which promulgate computer network development are present, i.e., educational costs are constantly a problem; the distribution of resources is heavily weighted in favor of the more industrialized countries; the mass of resources and users does exist even though it is not organized at the present time; and the development of a large-scale regional computer-communications network can indeed alleviate some of the shortcomings of the present situation.
