and don't really fit with the general idea of the page. The site
focuses on continuing education on the Internet.

Distance Education (K12, universities, etc.), Continuing Education's,

College Net has, without a doubt, some of the nicest graphics
I've seen on the WWW however, it does not make up a major hole
in content. The great thing about College Net is that prospective
students can go to the web site of almost any university and they
can search for financial aid. The problem is that one of the major
attractions to the site is the students can register online but
the majority of schools are in Australia. So, until there are
more US schools or at very least some big names (Ivy Leagues,
etc.), College Net will remain unimpressive.

reform and how to use this technology to achieve its goals. Overviews
