Abstract : Rapid advances in computer and communication technology present opportunities for the Army War College to enhance and expand strategic knowledge throughout the force. This paper examines the concept and theory of distance learning, briefly traces the history of its development and describes technology currently available. It discusses issues of quality and institutional planning and management and suggests some potential applications at the Army War College. It argues that, through the application of distance learning technology, the Army War College core missions of instruction, research, and outreach can be enhanced to meet the challenges of increased need for strategic knowledge at all levels, limited or declinIng resources, and the changing needs of students.
