Delivery systems are not well defined in adult education. Therefore, this article reviews the multiple components that overlap to affect the adult learner and uses them to create a model for a comprehensive delivery system in adult education with these individual components as sub-systems that are interrelated and inter-locked. These components are philosophy, theory, method, need, educational entity, influence, outcome, and assessment. By combining these, the adult educator has access to a delivery system consisting of a full spectrum of opportunities by which the learner may realize an optimal educational experience within a learning environment. The model provides the components that can make visible this invisible system. (Contains 1 figure.)
