Abstract: New technology provides an opportunity to move mathematical and technical education out of the lecture-homework-test mold into modes that do more to develop students' communication skills, teamwork, attention to quality, and overall responsible, mature behavior.
In practice, however, severe and presumably unnecessary obstacles are encountered, mostly connected with the difficulty of transmitting mathematical notation electronically. I will describe a partially successful scheme for carrying out peer review of homework papers over e-mail and the Web, resulting in a student-written solutions manual, and will offer a wish list of technical improvements.
