  • Alexander J. Romiszowski
Part of the Evaluation in Education and Human Services book series (EEHS, volume 43)


This chapter is about delivery systems for corporate training in the future. First, we will describe electronic networks and human resources development. The next section is about the changing face of human resource development. Subsequently, we answer the question why to use hypertext for electronic seminars and cases. Next we will describe seminars and case studies in a hypertext environment. Finally, we will give some future directions.
