The Missing Component in Distance Education: "Wetware" Development.
International Journal of Innovative Higher Education, v13 p54-56 Fall 1999
Urges distance educators to pay more attention to planning proper student interactions with "wetware," the internal processing/storage/retrieval systems and strategies used by the distance education learner. Notes that while hardware and software have developed, there has been little research into the differing learning styles of distance learners. Suggests that technological capabilities allow accommodation to various learning styles. (DB)
