dc.description.abstract The increase in internal and external communication has brought about a radical change in organization and has left its mark on education. Information remains the facilitator's most important aid. At present information is stored in textbooks, facilitator's notes, audiocassettes, sources of reference, videos and curriculum guides. Facilitators and learners obtain information from these sources and process it in various ways. By means of digital technology it has become possible both to keep all these sources up to date and to establish a direct link the other sources. The question arises as to how education can make use of this extensive aid. This research poses the question whether education can be advanced through the effective use of electronic communication such as videos, computers and, more specifically, the Internet. With a view to "the utilization of electronic communication for education", an Internet module as an example was designed, in order to determine which application possibilities exist in electronic communication, more specifically the Internet, and how they can be utilized for the dissemination of information. The research has attempted to provide guidelines for the effective utilization of an Internet module applied as learning content. A qualitative, exploratory and descriptive research design is followed within contextual setting to achieve the aims of the study. In Phase One of the research a relevant study of literature on electronic communication, the Internet, and education was undertaken in order to design and apply an Internet module. The research method consists of interviews with media experts, focusing on the application possibilities and the establishment of guidelines for an Internet module. A group interview with principals was held mainly for verification and triagulatory purposes. The results of the study were compared with existing literature on the subject. The conclusions, findings and recommendations resulting from the research were presented for consideration and further research. Some of the most important findings and recommendations follow. "FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS": Following the research, the following conclusions were drawn: (1) Utilization of the Internet can change the present set-up in education radically because information can be stored and disseminated electronically on a bigger scale. (2) The Internet seems to be a suitable medium for successful application in education. (3) The Internet facilitates communication between educators by bringing them into contact with kindred spirits. It can make it possible for the inexperienced facilitator to consult experts and it can play a role in the in- service training of large numbers of poorly qualified facilitators. (4) Through the Internet knowledge can be disseminated, making information accessible to many people in different places simultaneously. The storing capacity of the Internet makes it possible to access learning content at any time. "RECOMMENDATIONS". Recommendations arising from this research are discussed by referring to recommendations for the practice and study of education management. "Recommendations of a practical nature" (1) Technology should not be introduced without careful consideration. Education should make use of only that technology which has already been tried out and refined in the business world. Electronic communication must be introduced into as many areas as possible, but with the necessary circumspection. (2) Education authorities have an important role to perform, since the application of electronic communication as medium in education becomes feasible only when the required number of viewers is being reached, i.e. by creating a broad educational computer network.3) Resource centers must be created at schools to give learners access to: (3a) Printed source material (3b) Visual source material (3c) Video and audio programmes (3d) Computers with access to the Internet. Finally the study is evaluated and certain recommendation is made for future research. It is hope that this study will make an important contribution to men in the near future. en
