Distance learning on the Web, an evolution considered

consume, explore, involve, react, enthuse


An evolution of educational web use is suggested which tends in the direction of increasing interaction. It is proposed that the more a student can affect a teaching resource, the more effective it will become. The eventual aim is of course to enthuse the student such that further study is self motivated. Examples are given of the steps in this evolution, and the technical issues raised are then collected together and examined. Thoughts are given on the impact and desirability of solutions that have been proposed to help form the question - where do we go from here?
