Abstract

Universities around the world are involved in dynamic change as they seek to take advantage of the potential of the internet and information technology to provide learning opportunities which are independent of time and location. They must develop creative solutions in order to cope with changing educational requirements in an increasingly demanding global market. Yet many of the early attempts to use information technology and the internet for teaching have been nothing more that unreflective rebadging of material or repackaging of the more traditional modes of learning. To be successful, effective educational methodologies need to be anchored to the diverse material circumstances characterising different groups of learners. The challenge for universities offering programs of study is to provide avenues for learning which are reflective of the needs of its 'learning community', take advantage of the benefits which information technology provides while keeping in mind the outcomes desired for programs.
