Education for the global village: distance learning and the Internet
Author(s): Nigel J. Mason

Paper Abstract

Advances in optics and photonics technology requires the development of 'life long learning' techniques to maintain well trained technical (and management) staff. Such training may not be provided by 'traditional' lecture programmes. Distance learning allows study from home or the work place providing flexibility to both employer and employee.
