I find this article lengthy (29 print pages) and informative. This is 
the introduction:

"The evolution of the internet and other technologies has led to 
tremendous growth
in opportunities to teach and learn outside of the traditional classroom.
Over the past decade, the internet has brought learning "online" and 
offers many advantages: It is convenient, available at any time of 
the day, and can be accessed nearly anywhere in the world. Clearly, 
online or distributed learning, offers tremendous potential to 
increase the availability and convenience of education. And if the 
technologies behind distributed learning are made universally 
accessible, it will also have the potential to reach a significant 
percentage of those with disabilities.

Also I again encountered WAVE 3.0 -- dedicated to Len Kasday, whose ideas
first brought this project to light.
