Title: The Information Technology Revolution and Higher Education
Authors: Nelson, Gerald C.
Keywords: Induced innovation
Learning technologies
World Wide Web
Issue Date: 1996
Abstract: Higher education is under pressure from state legislatures and other clients to reduce costs. Two information technologies - increased computing power on the desktop and the World Wide Web - have shifted out the meta production function for instruction in higher education. The theory of induced innovation provides hypotheses about the kinds of educational practices that will attract technological change. Several sources of inefficiency in higher education are identified and likely technology-driven changes suggested. These innovations will provide the means to reduce costs in higher education.
