|New telecommunications and information technologies are radically transforming
the world in which colleges and universities operate. They are accelerating
changes in the higher education marketplace, presenting at the same time revolutionary tools
with the potential to make education more effective, more cost-effective, and
more widely available. What are the real opportunities and challenges? Which
changes are likely? Which are "hype"?
One hundred invited leaders from technology, education, and business came together at Penn on June 2 and 3, 1997, for intensive, interactive discussions covering the technological future and new models for delivery of education; new markets, competition, opportunities, issues, and business relationships in education; and the future of the undergraduate experience.
