- On-line education: a university strategy
- Pilgrim, Chris J.; Creek, M. J.
- The emergence of the Internet as a key weapon in the arsenal of the educator has opened up more possibilities than originally conceived. It not only provides mechanisms for communications and management of on-campus courses but with the development of integrated multimedia extensions, the Internet can deliver course material in a rich and engaging manner. Educators are always quick to exploit the full possibilities of new technologies and as such we now see the emergence of institutions that can offer courses to students world-wide. The introduction of on-line education is making the late 1990s a significant make-or-break time for many higher education institutions. This paper presents one university's response to the challenges of on-line education through a systematic and strategic development project.
