Internet technologies are changing the way we provide education and training at all levels. However, we have not yet fully utilized the power of these technologies. The focus has only been on the Web, which is only one of many Internet technologies. In this chapter, we go beyond the Web to leverage multiple Internet technologies to support in-class education. In this chapter, common problems in Web-based education are discussed, an experiment in developing and implementing a framework that seamlessly integrate various Internet technologies is presented, and the increase in learning effectiveness yielded by the new methodology is described.
