Title: Education virtual communities
Author: Anderson, Stanley
Abstract: Distance Learning is a prime area for expansion of a new internet business/community model since there is currently no broad-based application servicing this function. The goal of this project is to investigate and prepare the basis for a proposal to a financial backer such as AT&T or one of the large internet service providers. A major part of the paper will investigate the current state of the distance learning internet environment and how to improve it. One of the main improvements concerns the need for a standard interface, which should include a learning tool such as RIT's colloquy software. Continuing/lifelong education has become a staple in the information economy. Most people realize that increased education levels relate directly to increased income, which provides increased buying power. A service provider must determine the needs of the distance learning community and an effective and efficient method of delivering the product. From the perspective of a business owner, whether it is a university or a computer seller, a loyal customer within various stages of the lifelong learning curve is a profitable commodity.
