Everybody knows that we live a very big change of our world with the internationalism of business and probably of the people. Education and teaching are changing and electronic networks like Internet are very important in this change. It seems that Occident is concerning but also Asia, Africa or South America. Indeed some of our African sections (South Africa and Togo for example) have an access to Internet.

I was myself student in a degree (European studies) which was teaching with the normal way and by Internet and now, for my international research, Internet is very useful, particularly concerning European law, which is online. The knowledge of humanity, the different kinds of law are so different and so big to stay on paper. At NEUROMEDIA we know that our European library could be compressed on ten CD-ROM.

One of the big successes in Europe was the project SAELN (Students Across Europe Language Network) where schools from Germany, from France, from the United-Kingdom and from Spain were involved. Mr. Paul Kelly, headmaster of the high school of Monkseaton near Newcastle was involved with the DG XIII of the European Commission to allow students to speak a foreign language by the Internet system.

Concerning the university studies, GENESIS (GEneric Network for Satellite Interactive Systems) will provide a scientific information and knowledge for companies or individuals.

Many American universities provide some degrees by Internet and this is the opportunity for many students to get a degree in their country and also a foreign degree somewhere else.

We think that it is obvious that Internet is an essential system, particularly concerning research, but we have to underline that it should be only a complementary mean. In fact, schools and universities are places to have a social life. On Internet, everything is virtual even if some people become friend or more than friend. So we have to avoid changing the real education by virtual education.
