In a challenging yet enlightening exploration of the demands of a new era, In Search of the Virtual Class presents a vision of what education and training could become as information technology develops. Authors John Tiffin and Lalita Rajasingham examine the nature of

superhighways, which could offer a serious alternative to the classroom.
