Learning Environments of the Future: Narrow to Broadband via DVD.
Caladine, Richard
As the World Wide Web becomes part of mainstream learning and teaching at Australian universities, changes to online learning include a proliferation in the use of commercial learning environments and in the movement of institutional processes online. These changes indicate that now is an appropriate time to plan for the future. The University of Wollongong (Australia) has established a team to investigate learning technologies of the future. One of the first areas of concern for the group is the widening of the digital divide by broadband, creating the bandwidth rich and poor. This paper proposes a project to partially address this divide through the provision of media rich content by DVD in a hybrid DVD/WebCT environment. The hybrid will provide information and training in several aspects of the educational videoconference, including: introductory information on aesthetics of video and the framed image; on-screen communications; manual style information on how to operate videoconference equipment; and examples of pedagogical techniques for videoconference.
