Information, place, and cyberspace: issues in accessibility, Volume 14 by Donald G. Janelle, David Charles Hodge

….spaces defined by parameters such as travel time…..1. the notion of a generic, purpose-independent accessibility surface or definition of accessibiliy becomes untenable. ….2.space and time are no longer an independent metric for directly mediating accesibility, since the criteria by which a place is demed accessible may be predominatly constrained by scheduling options…scheduling is itself a spatial agent in modifying accesibiliy for the individual, since the ability to ineract with other and make use of facilities or services is conditional upon the existence of, or the ability of individual to create, appropriate sequences of time slots to perform activities, The intermeshing of these demands throughout the day already creates quite distinct diurnal geographies in the city (Janelle, Klinkenberg, and Goodchild, 1998)

virtual technology, virtual space - reschedule a student's day - change the usage pattern / density for physical spaces and others - an impact on the spatial pattern / organizaiton of / new arrangement / grography of tertiary learning,
physical / virtual substitution - new arrangements of campus cells in an urban area which better meet student life-style needs though a real/virtual blend of approaches, would be an interesting situation to model for real and physical time-budgets and accessibility

….web-based tutorials….independent of a campus locaiton, as can be the delivery of digitally based labs and other Intranet and lib resources that can employ virtual Intranets….leaning options for mainstream students become more flexible…one possible outcome of these technologies is not a wholesale shift into a virtual or distance learning mode, but rather a modification of mainstream tuition to embody aspects of both social learning and distance methos in so called high tech/high touch scenarios (Forer 1997, 1998)
