    Abstract

    Abstract It is presumed that recent technological innovations, combined with three more established (educational) technologies, could cause a drastic change in university education, if adequate organizational conditions could be created. Such conditions are needed to structure, channel and manage an as yet undreamed of flow of information. Closely related to the metaphor of the 'Info Highway', an educational 'Superlnterface' is described. Based upon networked computer platforms, such a human-computer-human interface is to support large scale telestudy (and teleworking). The Superlnterface is to be designed or is to evolve in such a way that reliable and valid organizational foundations for university education can be established. As the organizational foundation is so paramount, the authors would like to see serious research into the modelling of Superlnterface structures, resources, and dynamics. Indications of some such research issues are presented.
