Abstract: Internet and the World Wide Web have probably caused the most dramatic paradigm changes in learning and teaching, even more than the printed book. In this paper we investigate the changes to key time factors occurring in the education process in an academic institution (a university) due to changing paradigms in the information and communication technologies. We identify three important time delays: the publication delay, needed to make new knowledge known to a wider public, the lead-time of a teacher in relation to the students with respect to new knowledge in a certain field of specialization, and the source regression delay, the time to find and analyze an original document in relation to some claims made. We investigate the changes to these time factors from the viewpoint of two key persons: a teacher who acquires knowledge in order to pass it on, and a student who is interested in this knowledge. We further analyze these time factors from the viewpoint of five key technologies of dissemination and note the resulting changes: oral tradition and dissemination, hand-written books, typeset printed books, books based on camera-ready submission, and the Internet, which receives special attention. Finally some conclusion with respect to academic education and universities are which might balance some of the identified problems.
