** Scope
While Internet access is growing in schools, universities and the corporate
training arena at a geometric rate, a recent article related to Telematics
and Internet based course development stated that every hour of web instruction
was costing about 100 hours of preparation. There is an apparent need to harness
the educational value of the Internet, as it is, without extremely time consuming
authorship. Therefore, this special issue will focus on the curricular,
instructional, and learning aspects of the Internet for professors, teachers
and trainers who do not construct web courses or highly complex web creations.

The first term, curriculum, is basically defined as the subject matter content
or body of learning objectives that the Internet has to offer for more or less
direct import into the educational setting. The second term, instruction, is
construed to be the ways and means that the Internet curriculum is strategically
deployed in educational settings to promote learning. The third term, learning,
refers to the unique characteristics of learning, in a theoretical and a pragmatic
sense, as experienced in relation to the medium of the Internet.

We invite submissions covering these aspects that fall into the following

- Full length articles describing research results, presented through discussion
and comparative analysis methods (about 5000 words);
- Short feature articles presenting case studies and emerging theories (about
2500 words);
- Critiques, reviews, individual experiences (about 1500 words).
