Summary

The purpose of this paper is to advance the argument that universities should move toward using distance education as rapidly and as fully as possible. The paper discusses three reasons to support the proposition: (1) Technological advances have brought us to a point that most of the university curriculum can be individualized and delivered via the Internet both easily and effectively. Bandwidth problems have been largely eliminated. Within the next two or three years the available bandwidth will be sufficient for full motion video at 30 frames per second, coupled with streaming sound. This will provide full multimedia potential; (2) Distance education is, in the long term, a more effective and efficient delivery system for colleges and universities than the traditional face-to-face models that are most commonly used. Development can be costly, but once the preparations are made, the same unit of instruction can be delivered multiple times with uniform quality. In addition, the Internet and related software can facilitate record keeping, including registration, grades, attendance, and billing; and (3) Distance education is far better for the learner than is the traditional model because it can provide truly individualized instruction, and 'just-in-time' delivery to a learner at any location.
