Editor's Foreword

The Learning Room site that hosts Communication Project Magazine continues to be an evolutionary event. With this second volume of Communication Project Magazine, we explore learning from various vantage points. The two articles in this issue are a case in point. "Web-Based Distance Learning: Tool for Change" outlines the benefits of distance learning using the World Wide Web and corporate intranets. We also offer a review of The Witch Doctors by Micklethwait and Wooldridge, a highly readable and candid account of management theory today.

Communication Project Magazine is currently being offered quarterly. However, since it is still under construction, you might want to check more frequently to see if articles have been added to an issue (a purely electronic prerogative). Since all magazines seem to require an editorial policy, here goes.

We would expect the scope of the publication to become more focused with time. However, at this point, any articles that relate to learning are likely prospects. They can range from learning theory to practical applications for training and the school classroom. Future issues will include reviews of relevant books, articles, and Web sites, as well as an occasional irreverent critique of current teaching and training issues and practices. Please see our Call for Articles for instructions on submitting your ideas to our pages.

We welcome your comments and observations which can be sent through our contact page. In the meantime, thank you for visiting us . . .
