Bruce A. Austin and Rudy R. Pugliese

  The present study reports the results of a self-administered survey distributed to students enrolled in one RIT academic department. Students evaluated the academic department's email contact with them, their preferred mode of delivery for 12 specific kinds of information, what they "do" with specific kinds of information, and their rating of the level of importance they assign to nine kinds of information.  

Analysis and Design of an E-learning Model for Organizational Excellence and Versatility

Muthukumar, S. L.,
National Institute of Education Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

    E-learning has gained phenomenal popularity in recent years both in the educational as well as corporate arenas. In view of pedagogical underpinnings, however many of them lack the robustness and vigour required of them. This paper attempts to expound on some of the attributes of a powerful e-learning model intended to accentuate authentic learning through quality learning tasks. An in-depth analysis and design framework for delivering such e-learning systems has also been explicated. Based upon the Analysis Design Development Implementation Evaluation (ADDIE) model and learner centered technologies, this e-learning model could be of great utility to e-learning instructional designers and multimedia developers in invoking dynamic e-learning prescriptives that would spur organizational excellence and versatility.  

Book Review:
The Digital Revolution and the Coming of the Postmodern University.
Raschke, C. (2003), London: Routeledge Falmer

Review by: Marcus Harrison, Bowling Green State University

    The world is a constantly changing. In recent years, the powerful social, cultural, and economic changes have led many to predict the end of higher education, as it is known. With the invention of the "information superhighway," knowledge can now be diffused over millions of computer networks around the globe and is often no longer delivered by the traditional gatekeepers¾ teachers. Recently, a book that should be deemed one of the most important pieces of current literature on education was published. The short book, entitled The Digital Revolution and the Coming of the Postmodern University, by Carl Raschke, can be described as a sneak peek into the future of higher education that is rapidly approaching.
