Transformation of academic, student and administrative management are key elements in the institutionalisation of Internet/intranet-based (networked) education in higher education. The distributed nature of networked education demands distributed models of academic, student and administrative management. This precept is based on the writer's doctorate research, implementation of networked education at Massey University, New Zealand as well as on consulting assignments over the last six years including a five-month consulting engagement at Cape Technikon, South Africa. Some argue that networked education is essentially an alternative delivery mode and its management is thus no different than that of other modes. Others posit that networked education is a new educational paradigm and a response to the educational needs of the emerging information society, in the same way as the traditional class was a response to the educational needs of the industrial society. Management of networked education is therefore fundamentally different from conventional educational management and correlates with new forms of private enterprise management including management of the learning organization, the information-based organisation and the networked organisation. The writer proposes a new form of higher educational management for the operations of networked education: networked educational management. The following dimensions of networked educational management are discussed: its distributed nature, managing convergence, its adaptability and transitory character.
