- In the increasingly competitive field of management education, the Open University Business School (OUBS) is Britain's market leader. Drawing on its experience as a pioneer of open and distance learning in the management education field, OUBS has now extended its system of student communication and support to include the use of computer-mediated conferencing (CMC) as a mass teaching tool. This paper describes the use of CMC in the graduate entry course to the MBA, a course that attracts some 1,500 managers each year from across Europe, and summarises the student evaluation of their use of CMC as a learning support medium. The paper concludes with a discussion of the implications of the student's reaction to CMC for the future effective use of ICT in management education.
