INTRODUCTION The education and training sector is a major industry with political, social and economic importance, which is characterized by the delivery of a service that is a highly individual and personal experience. Internet could bring significant changes in education from the individual sphere to the most general socio-economic structures. However, as much as internet is important to education, the education sector is strategic for the overall development of internet. Many key technologies and uses are being pioneered in education. The sector is a major source of demand for internet materials of various sorts. Tomorrow’s generations of internet developers and authors are trained within the sector. Perhaps more importantly, the next generation of internet users will be exposed to the technology and skills in their learning, preparing them for use of internet in other fields of life.
