Education plays a crucial role in the New Economy. As society leans more heavily on technology solutions, employees need to be more technology-savvy to thrive. Technology has also begun to democratize education (Converge magazine, December 2000) with its ability to make lifelong learning a reality for anyone at any time. From professional development to student/teacher portals, from computer-based training to webcasting, this session highlights some of the latest trends in education for the lifelong student.
