The e-revolution and post-compulsory education: using e-business models to deliver quality education

Book English OPEN
Boys, Jos ; Ford, Peter (2008)
  • Publisher: Routledge
  • Subject: X900

The best practices of e-business are revolutionising not just technology itself but the whole process through which services are provided; and from which important lessons can be learnt by post-compulsory educational institutions. This book aims to move debates about ICT and higher education beyond a simple focus on e-learning by considering the provision of post-compulsory education as a whole. It considers what we mean by e-business, why e-business approaches are relevant to universities and colleges and the key issues this raises for post-secondary education.
