Technology has become ubiquitous everywhere, except in schools. Although many schools are now acquiring the tech-nology, not enough money is being set aside for professional development of teachers in the use of technology. Conse-quently, teachers do not feel adequately prepared to integrate technology into their daily practice. The purpose of this study was to examine the use of the World Wide Web (WWW or Web) and e-mail as a viable option for the profes-sional development of K-12 educators. Two classes were in-vestigated; one delivered using the Web and another one in a face-to-face environment. Quantitative and qualitative meth-ods were used in this investigation. The researchers conclud-ed that distance learning is not an education of inferior quali-ty to those university courses taught on campus, and that classes delivered on the Web provide a viable option for pro-fessional development of K-12 teachers.
