Learning Environment for the Next Generation.
Whiteman, Jo Ann M.
Adults who desire to increase their education need to find courses and programs that meet their needs, time schedules, and financial means. Increasingly, courses for adults will be conducted on the World Wide Web. Many colleges are conducting courses on the Web, and many adults are discovering that, after trying such a course, they actually like learning on the Web because it is convenient and much more personalized and interactive than expected. Many Web sites are available that provide information about Web-based courses at various colleges and universities as well as through private training organizations. Web-based courses are especially necessary for trainers, who not only need to learn the content but also need to learn how to use the Internet to learn and teach. Learning is becoming much less teacher-centered and much more learner-centered. The Internet creates another choice for the lifelong learner as to where and when to learn.
