Report on the Teaching and Learning on the Internet Projects--RMIT TAFE.
This paper reports on the initial stages of developing training modules for study by students on the Internet in a course on local government. These training modules and their development are part of the "Teaching and Learning on the Internet Project" at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) (Australia). Some of the advantages of this type of training over traditional off-campus distance education are discussed along with its limitations. Preliminary issues in setting up training courses on the Internet are discussed, including costs and funding, teacher involvement in decision making, and designs that maximize ease of use and student interest. The elements of a successful approach to the delivery of online training are also summarized. (Author/AEF)
