Abstract

By simplifying communication, the Internet is causing significant, broad changes. This chapter describes some effects of the Internet on teaching and research: the use of Web pages in teaching, spread of remote statistical analysis, elimination of journal page constraints, and the impact on activities that benefit from debate and discussion. The chapter ends by pointing out that although the technical implications of an innovation are predictable, the major social implications often do not become apparent for years.
