Summary

This publication presents a compilation of information about technologies used for distance education and web-based training for practitioners in adult, career, and vocational education. It focuses on the use of technology in the following ways: (1) as an instructional tool that expands classroom walls and enables the delivery of specialized training in workplaces; (2) as a facilitator of learning based on constructivist theory, supporting cognitive development and equitable learning environments; and (3) as a strategy for development through interactive communication, critical thinking, and authentic assessment. The last section highlights some ways in which distance technology can be an impetus for educational reform. The publication includes reprints of selected articles that explore the following topics in more depth: the virtual campus, learning styles and electronic information, technology and adult learning, information management, ethical considerations in online learning, and cultural sensitivity toward diverse online learners. The paper contains 71 references. (SK)
