Back to school

The Army plans to offer its troops a broad range of distance-learning options

that would provide them with college credits, degrees and professional certification.

To make it happen, the service will need the following:

n Cooperation and brainstorming from schools and colleges, Internet companies,

and computer hardware and software firms on how best to structure the Web-based

program.

n Barracks and other facilities wired for easy Internet access, including

an Internet service provider that is reliable and accessible even from a

deployed location.

n Equipment that is durable and portable, so that it can function from

a deployment site as well as from a U.S. base.

n A program that is available to soldiers anytime and from any location.
