Cyberschools: An Education Renaissance
By Glenn R. Jones
First published in 1996, Cyberschools explained how the fusion of technology and education would transform the way we learn. Jones anticipated the global boom in distance learning and the mainstreaming of online education. The new edition examines the implications of the latest technology trends and makes a compelling case for increased investment, creative collaboration and entrepreneurship.
Cyberschools 2010 also features an insider view of the groundbreaking assessment model developed by Jones International University:

Founded by cable television magnate Glenn R. Jones in 1993, JIU was the first university anywhere to exist completely online. In 1999, JIU became the first online university to earn accreditation, receiving its regional accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission, a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools—the highest level of accreditation an institution of higher learning can obtain in the U.S.
Jones and JIU have a long track record of innovation in distance education, fusing technology with learning. Recently, JIU pioneered the development and implementation of an assessment model that measures student success, enabling students to prove their competency to potential employers.
