Telematics in Education provides readers with an exciting examination of the use of computer based communication technologies within education. Discussion ranges from whether new forms of teaching and learning involving telematics can replace existing methods, to how far collaborative learning can take place through telematics.

The authors consider the possible implications for psychological and organisational issues in education and how an increased use of telematics could radically alter the relationship between education and society.

...This volume would be particularly useful to educators in long distance learning, the sociology of education, and educational technology. Reference & Research Book News
