Distance Learning in Einstein’s Fourth Dimension
This article blends the concepts of spacetime from theoretical physics and Einstein’s Relativity Theory to discuss the spatiotemporal nature of distance education. By comparing and contrasting speed-of-light space travel with the speed of computer processing, the leap is made to consider the fourth dimension and its phenomena for the Web traveler. Learning events are compared with events in time to depict the theory presented.
