Finnish Virtual (Online) Collaborative University--A Model for Australia?
Tuovinen, Juhani
This paper contrasts two planned online university ventures, the Virtual University of Finland and the University of Australia Online. The meaning and operations of these institutions are considered with respect to the virtual teaching and research nexus, cost issues, and their capability to respond to quick changes in knowledge. The issue of organizational collaboration underlying these plans is explored in terms of negative and positive examples. Their virtual operations are discussed in terms of the fundamental educational interactions leading to observations to be considered in the development of new virtual and online education provisions.
