The End of the University?
Tehranian, Majid
Distance Educator, v2 n2 p11,16-18,28 Sum 1996
Discusses three important functions of the university (the creation, preservation, and transmission of knowledge) and how those functions are being usurped by new telecommunications and network technologies. Argues that universities must meet the technological challenge by reinventing themselves and offering vocational education, moral guidance, locally relevant information, and teaching of lifelong learning.
