Abstract

The Internet, which began as a vehicle for scholars to convey ideas in an open forum, in real time and free of geographic confines, currently is viewed as a World Wide Web of computer networks carrying everything from books to stock trades almost at the speed of thought. In this article, the authors raise the question of how far academics have come in applying the technology that they pioneered. To explore the use of Web-based teaching methods among U.S. business schools, the authors ask the following questions: How many (and what types of) course materials are available to students accessing information via the Internet? Have faculty discovered the on-ramp to the information superhighway or are they still parked in their own driveways?.
