MetadataShow full item record
The principal strength of the initiative in New Brunswick is the high degree of cooperation and collaboration in implementing projects among all sectors. The TeleEducation initiative is being used as a driver to promote the development of new economy industries. The new industries profit from the innovative environment and the advanced province-wide infrastructure for telecommunications and distance education. The province benefits from the increased accessibility to education and training now possible through the network. Students in all regions can now access the training they will need to survive in the information economy. In addition, by focusing on courses and courseware development for export, a viable new industry can be created.
