Abstract
Not Available Though technology has played a role in the increased retention and educational gains of low-literate adults, much work remains. Researchers in adult education and policymakers have recommended that new instructional technologies with their promise of increased efficiency be pursued. Like personal computers in the earlier part of this decade, the Internet holds much appeal to adult learners. Because of the Internet's inherent appeal, there is considerable potential for courseware products delivered over this medium to have a better chance of keeping students enrolled in the adult education program. In addition, the Internet offers students the opportunity to be connected via e-mail, chats and bulletin boards and the World Wide Web to tutors, teachers, other students and the world of information. If this project is funded, Interactive Knowledge intends to create a reading comprehension courseware model that can be delivered to students over the Internet. This model will be based on a successful CD-ROM courseware model that has already been developed, tested and marketed by Interactive Knowledge. Once the Internet courseware model is completed, it will be tested with adult students who function between the 5th and 8th grade reading level.
