Dear Colleages -

I have not studied this document, but it seems a resource worth
knowing about.


(from The Scout Report -- January 12, 2001)

The Power of the Internet for Learning: Final Report of Web-Based
Education Commission [.pdf]

Published on December 19 and recently placed online by the US
Department of Education, the final report of the Web-Based Education
Commission (WBEC) constitutes the "most comprehensive analysis ever
undertaken of education and the Internet." Chaired by Nebraska
Senator Bob Kerrey, the WEBC urged the new administration and
Congress to fully embrace e-learning, address gaps in Internet
access, and revise certain regulations that they believe impede
innovation. Users can read the full text of the 169-page report in
its entirety or in five parts in .pdf format.
