The Impact on Education of the World Wide Web.
Hobbs, D. J.; Taylor, R. J.
This paper describes a project which created a set of World Wide Web (WWW) pages documenting the state of the art in educational multimedia design; a prototype WWW-based multimedia teaching tool--a podiatry test using HTML forms, 24-bit color images and MPEG video--was also designed, developed, and evaluated. The project was conducted between sites in the United Kingdom and Australia, using the WWW and other Internet functionality to exchange and share information, giving valuable first-hand experience of the benefits and frustrations of online cooperation. Topics discussed include new Internet functionality; the WWW for research and information seeking; the WWW as teaching tool; the WWW as examiner; the WWW as an educational forum; the WWW in collaborative education; the multimedia based-teaching and assessment tool; and a case study in distance learning and supervision.
