You have asked the $64,000,000 question.

Besides some of the links on my website listed below, here are a few you
might be interested in:

Software Design and its relationships to fun, S. Draper,

Issues related to technology in Teacher Education Programs and K-12 Public
Schools in Texas, Jolly, Davis, Strader and Denton, Educational Technology
and Society 2(3) 1999 ISSN 1436-4522 ... found in PDF format on their web
list serve E-dress. The WEB site.

There are several good articles dealing with distance learning in these

You might also try these: This might answer some of your

These are just a few of the sites I use for research and information. The
repackaging of old materials is known as "shovelware" and it is the

You might also look up some basic Semiotics sites and I believe the

web and WBT offerings.

Hope this helps a little and don't run screaming into the night because of
what looks like an insurmountable bunch of material. It is all relevant.

Good Luck and let me know if I can be of more help (I hope this is help).

If I think of or find anything else I will send it along.
