This three volume report describes a study that addressed the potential impact of information technology (IT)-based educational technology on the challenges facing the continuing education and vocational, industrial, and professional training sector of the Commission of European Communities member countries, and appropriate leading-edge applications of the products of advanced IT for evaluation and training. The Executive Summary highlights key aspects of the purpose, conduct, and findings of the study, which utilized questionnaires, case studies, literature reviews, preparation of an educational technology scenario for the 1990s, and a meeting of experts from the 10 commission countries. The main report discusses the study details, as well as the technology of education and training, its current applications and costs, opportunities for advanced educational technology, some obstacles to the introduction and appropriate use of IT, and a proposed strategy. Annexes to the report include a statistical summary of questionnaire responses; a list of site visits; questionnaires used with employers of trained manpower, educators and coordinators, and IT-manufacturers and service providers; a five-page primary documentation list; a case study of the use of computer-assisted instruction at the Credit Agricole; and transcripts of a 1984 meeting on the Future of Information Technology in Education and Training.
