In 1995, the Mountain-Plains Consortium in the U.S. initiated TEL8. TEL8 is a satellite-based telecommunications system that serves ten sites in Federal Highway Administration's Region 8. This paper presents the attributes of TEL8 to demonstrate the roles for distance learning in a changing world. The role of distance learning must be expanded with other technologies such as the World Wide Web to effectively develop the World Interchange Network (WIN). Expanding and sharing transportation technology world wide is dependent on technologies such as TEL8 in a series of regional networks.
