This paper reviews a range of applications in which telecommunications have been used for professional development of teachers: From those which retrieve information, to those which provide it, with the most exciting group collaborations in the middle. What could be more appropriate for the professional development of distance educators themselves? Older text based systems have recently been complimented with Multimedia resources but many common themes remain. Cases are discussed to uncover their strengths and the issues involved. Training for teachers using the tool of Telematics to answer real needs is advocated.
