      "But under whose care soever a child is put to be taught during
      the tender and flexible years of his life, this is certain: it should
      be one who thinks Latin and language the least part of education; one
      who, knowing how much virtue and a well-tempered soul is to be
      preferred to any sort of learning or language, makes it his chief
      business to form the mind of his scholars and give that a right
      disposition, which if once got, though all the rest should be
      neglected, would in due time produce all the rest and which, if it
      not be got and settled so as to keep out ill and vicious habit,
      languages and sciences and all the other accomplishments of education
      will be to no purpose but to make the worse or more dangerous
      man."
      John Locke (1632-1704)
      Some Thoughts Concerning Education (1996 Edition, p.135)

      In an interview with James Morrison, Eduprise founder William Graves:
      discusses the current state of today's learning economy. Focusing
      on the perspectives of four groups of players in the field--students,
      instructors, institutions, and policymakers--Graves considers the
      impact of technology on these groups, and reflects upon the further
      changes in store for higher education.

      Chris O'Hagan explores the aims and methods of institutions with
      apparent global ambitions to determine how such universities might
      influence the trajectory of conventional schools. O'Hagan suggests
      that highly selective institutions protective of their elite
      reputations may have something to worry about as globalization offers
      broader access to educational, intellectual, and economic
      opportunities.

      Fastrak-consulting: THE END OF THE COURSE AS WE KNOW IT: Two
      developments give us some hope that we can meet the challenges of
      constant change and individual differences - one is new technology,
      the other a new way of thinking. The technology has been around a
      while now, in the form of personal computers and networks, and has
      made it easier for learners to access courses on a self-study basis
      or, with other learners, in virtual classrooms... The new thinking is
      more significant and is not necessarily confined to
      technology-assisted learning. It is based on a new paradigm, in which
      training is no longer offered as ready-made, shrink-wrapped products,
      but is instead built to order from a large variety of basic
      ingredients. The offering is a personalised learning path. The
      ingredients are learning objects.

      George Lorenzo provides an up-to-date overview of eArmyU, a program

      service providers, technical and managerial support services, and

      its personnel. For institutions looking ahead to the future of
      education, eArmyU represents a promising catalyst for the further
      expansion of online learning.

      If online courses show higher rates of attrition than traditional
      courses, can we conclude that online courses are not as good? David
      P. Diaz proposes that drop rates have a crucial relationship with the
      typical characteristics and circumstances of online learners--factors
      that do not translate into either their quality of learning or their
      ability to succeed.

      1 GHz Chips for Mobile Devices: U.K.-based ARM, developers of the
      StrongARM microprocessors used in all current Pocket PC 2002s, has
      announced its next generation of ARM chip technology. When
      manufactured with imminently available foundry processes, the
      architecture will support clock speeds in excess of 1 GHz. The ARM11
      microarchitecture will use a new instruction set that has been
      developed specifically for mobile and embedded devices, which
      includes optimized multimedia and Java support. New chips
      incorporating the ARM11 technology are expected to appear before the

      House panel authorizes $73.4 billion military procurement: By George
      C. Wilson and Mary Beth Warner, National Journal News Service: The
      Military Procurement panel of the House Armed Services Committee
      agreed by a unanimous voice vote Tuesday to authorize $73.4 billion
      to buy ships, tanks, missiles and planes for the American military in
      the coming fiscal year, National Journal News Service reported.
      Subcommittee Chairman Curt Weldon, R-Pa., said the total was $3.2
      billion more than President Bush had requested, but left unclear how
      funds would be redistributed to keep the president's total fiscal
      2003 request for the Pentagon within agreed-upon limits. Armed
      Services Chairman Bob Stump, R-Ariz., allowed Weldon and other
      subcommittee chairmen to divvy up about $5 billion as they saw fit,
      with the procurement panel allotted $3.2 billion. Stump is expected
      to explain where the extra money will come from when the full
      committee meets to mark up the defense bill today.

      TRENDS SECTION

      The days may well be numbered for the course as the essential _unit
      of learning_. The typical course is a shrink-wrapped offering where
      every learner receives the same training, regardless of the job that
      they do or the skills they already possess. As Clive Shepherd
      demonstrates is this article, what_s needed is a more targeted
      approach in which training is precisely tailored to job and
      individual needs. To make this possible we require a new paradigm for
      training delivery, one that is based on the intelligent deployment of
      learning objects.

      From: eMarketer: 29 April 2002: University Students and Faculty Use
      Library Less: According to a 2002 study from the Digital Library
      Federation (DLF) and Outsell, Inc., 80% of US college and university
      students and faculty believe the internet has changed the manner in
      which they use campus libraries. Over 34% of respondents say they use
      their schools' libraries less than they did two years ago. DLF and
      Outsell surveyed 3,200 students and faculty members at US
      universities and liberal arts colleges and also determined that of
      the time undergraduate and graduate students spend looking for
      research or coursework information, roughly 34% is spent in the
      library. Undergraduates spend roughly 50% of their time researching
      coursework in their residences. Professors spend roughly 10% of their
      time in the library searching for research or teaching information.
