dc.description.abstractOnline technologies, especially computer-based communications tools, potentially permit greater flexibility for users. Preceding these potential advantages, however, are important questions about communications and learning needs, expectations about the organization of the learning environment, and availability of required computer resources. This paper raises some important questions about the uses of online technologies in the context of available technical resources. Answers to these questions should assist in more effective planning for implementation of online technologies, and better understanding of the assumptions underlying their use.en
