Abstract

The chapter examines the educational (and schooling) processes as related to the overall social, political and economic processes, so as to set the context within which e-Learning has to be explored and discussed and within which a strategy for it can be forged. Such issues as the economic implications of the educational system, the extent to which economic considerations and realities are actually taken into account in curricula building and in the process of teacher training are discussed, along with the notion of acquisition of knowledge and/or information. The chapter portrays the parameters that are required to create a well balanced strategy for the developing of e-Learning as a major vehicle for the implementation of the overall social goals of education, of which one essential seems to be lacking at times: the preparation of the system’s customer, the pupil, as a critical observer of reality and a careful and discriminative customer of the ever developing consumption oriented society.
