The Use of Information and Communications Technology in Teaching and E-Learning in the Caribbean
Masino, Monica
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v12 Sep 2013
As educational institutions and other training facilities search for more economical ways to deliver education and training, the Internet has become the main mode of choice for its reach is farther and wider than any major educational marketing initiative. The Internet is also an inexpensive tool that delivers access to education and training to persons previously thought impossible to reach. One could say that the Internet has widened access to education and other trainings to persons that were once excluded due to working hours, family obligations, and other external commitments (Masino, 1998). While the Internet has fulfilled its role of providing access to education and training to those persons once excluded for various reasons, there is a movement away from the previous modes used to deliver education and training at a distance. Teleconference, although, expensive, is used less in delivery of instruction while the move is more towards distance learning utilizing the Internet. The issue of access to education and training through the Internet should cause institutions to re-evaluate previous modes of distance learning delivery and either infuse or supplement those model platforms into current modes of distance learning channeled through the Internet (Masino, 1998). The purpose of this paper is to capture perceptions of the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in teaching and e-learning at The University of the West Indies Open Campus.
