Communications technologies (CT) are developing at rapid pace, carrying the potential to deliver education to more learners in more satisfactory ways. For adult educators, CT might overcome some of the barriers to student participation. Career educators and counselors could provide a higher level of career guidance to greater numbers. The need for currency in vocational preparation can be facilitated by CT. An earlier ERIC Digest by Miller (1983) described some of these technologies and how they will influence education and the role of the educator. To update that information, this Digest looks at some uses and their effectiveness; it also reviews some of the issues their use poses for adult, career, and vocational educators.
