The use of online, or digital, learning is expanding across the globe changing many aspects of society and culture. The creation of the eUniversity in the UK and other virtual universities across Europe and America has been the response to this digital revolution. Written by the well-known and highly regarded Carl Raschke, this fascinating book lays out the social, historical and conceptual rationale for the technological transformation of education. It describes how a radical shift in our view of higher education is impelled by the 'new economy' of networked computers and information. Raschke also analyses the concept of 'postmodern' organisation as set forth in recent decades by both American and French cultural theorists and focuses on the developing philosophical issues involved. This book provides an economic and theoretical framework to assist policy-makers in formulating decisions and development plans. It sketches a vision of the new structures of higher learning, known as the 'HyperUniversity', making it an invaluable tool to the higher education community as a whole.
