Abstract : Experimental operation of computers by multiple users located remotely is being extended with increasing momentum into a variety of fields. Problems with equipment, computer programs, and other system elements are being examined, and preliminary solutions are being tested and evaluated. The paper briefly reviews these developments and discusses the following and several other important implications for education: the impact on classroom procedures, curriculum design, and programmed instruction; the consequent centralization of administrative support and effects on local autonomy; the resulting acceleration in the introduction of computers in technical education at the university, college, and secondary-school level.
