Teaching with Technology: Value-Added Innovation or Necessity?
Tennent, Beth; Windeknecht, Karen; Kehoe, Jo
Campus-Wide Information Systems, v21 n4 p144-150 2004
Central Queensland University (CQU) has used paper based distance education materials, such as course profiles, study guides and resource materials since 1971. The purpose of this exploratory study was to review three different approaches to online delivery and assessment currently being used in the Faculty of Business and Law, CQU, and to analyse the rates of take-up and involvement, and students' reactions generally, to the use of non-traditional forms of delivery and assessment. This study highlights that the key to success in this environment is accepting the constant demand to provide manageable and cost-effective courses whilst at the same time ensuring that the needs of a large and diverse group of students are met. In this context, the use of technology in education although considered a necessity can also be a value-adding tool. (Contains 1 figure and 3 tables.)
