The Virtual University?

Knowledge, Markets, and Management

Edited by Kevin Robins and Frank Webster

Higher Education is changing-in scope, style, technology, and objectives. This book looks at the impact of information technologies on higher education and the reorganization of universities in more managerial and business directions. The book will combine empirical and analytical chapters from scholars on both sides of the Atlantic.
This book, written by scholars from around the world discuss the effects of information technology on higher education. This volume covers the process of integrating information techology, creating virtual learning and possible consequences of the new information and communications techologies for higher education. It also focuses on how becoming a "virtual university" contributes to the reorganization of colleges and universities, gaining a more managerial and business identity globally.
