Newman declared Knowles as the only adult educator who provided an andragogical means to assess the needs of adult learners. Isenberg provided a breakthrough framework for bringing together the interaction of theoretical and practical aspects of andragogical and internet learning. Zollar and Harrison concluded that Knowles' expanding upon his earlier work propelled the movement of the differences between individual adult and child learners. Boucouvalas underscored, clarified, and strengthened Knowles' andragogical emphasis being on organizational as well as individual learning. Vodde's research on police preparation found better results with using Knowles' andragogy than with using pedagogy. Henschke discovered the same with Brazilians in 30 corporations. Henry's dissertation on Knowles was number eight and was published later as a history of Knowles' thought. Brights and Mahdi's andragogical research in Iraq fostered and secured long-term peace and stability. This chapter explores all of this.
