Local Area Networks in Education: Overview, Applications, and Current Limitations


by Philip K. Piele - 1986

As the base of microcomputers expands, the potential application for LANs will expand as well.

This chapter will attempt to provide some answers to several questions: What are LANs? What are the basic elements of their technology? What are their typical hardware and software components? What are some of their instructional and management applications in schools? What are the current limitations on their use? What should schools do about LANs now?
