Lalita Rajasingham, John Tiffin. Routledge, 2002 M09 11 - 224 pages.

Lalita Rajasingham, John Tiffin. The book describes how, through the convergence of a cluster of new technologies including virtual reality, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology and the superhighways of telecommunications, a new educational paradigm will emerge in the form of a virtual class. Teachers, trainers and educators who worry about how best to prepare students for life in an ever-changing world will find much inspiration in this engagingly written and jargon-free book.

Since then, virtual universities have multiplied worldwide. This book is about the shift from the modern university of the nation state to the global virtual university of the future. Since then, virtual universities have multiplied worldwide.

It is not unusual to hear that a significant separation or divergence exists between the interests of library and information science professionals who work in library and information services and those who are university teachers

It is not unusual to hear that a significant separation or divergence exists between the interests of library and information science professionals who work in library and information services and those who are university teachers. This division results in limited cooperation between the two communities and further debilitates already weak international collaboration in the discipline.

The Global Virtual University book. Since then, virtual universities have multiplied worldw This book is about the shift from the modern university of the nation state to the global virtual university of the future.

This book is about the shift from the modern university of the nation state to the global virtual university of the future. John Tiffin and Lalita Rajasingham launched the idea of virtual universities on the Internet with the publication of 'In Search of the Virtual Class: Education in an Information Society' in 1995. Since then, virtual universities have multiplied worldwide. However, the authors argue that globalisation and the Internet are still in their infancy, and universities have yet to face the challenges of global free trade in broadband telecommunications, artificial intelligence and HyperReality.Based on material gathered from research in the USA, Japan, Taiwan, Brazil, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand, this book describes how a global university could function in the future and presents a paradigm from which it might be constructed.This unique, visionary text will be critical reading for academics, postgraduate students and for anyone involve din policymaking and planning within the university community and administration.

This title gives informative survay and forcast on the university toward the future.
Global and virtual are the keywords of the university.
By reviewing current universities in the world,this book forcasts that everybody,young and old,men and women, can join any class and take any professor's class through the communication networks as their avatars as if they were gathered at the same place.
The authors predicate that the class in the future will be constructed based on HyperReality.HyperReality is a very attractive and strong concept which will provide the communication means between the real peopla and the virtual people.
The virtual people means avatars and/or computer agents.the avatar is a one to one corespondence to its real people.
The avatar's motion is controlled by its real human motion.
Then in HyperReality,people,real and virtual, interact together.
Through Hyperreality,people who are at different locations are brought together through the communication networks and hold a class as if they were gathered at the same place.
It is very attractive and informative.
I recommend everybody who is interested in the university in the future to read this title strongly.

At nearly 10 years old now (2003) this book is like a breathe of fresh air...an honest look at teaching at university (even if you aren't interested in global virtual bits), I regularly wanted to cheer while reading it. If you are a lecturer suffering from the nonsense thrown at you from university administrators and 'learning and teaching' experts then this book is an enjoyable read.
