Appropriate Technology for Distance Education in Digital Communications

Chapman, D.A. (2001). Appropriate Technology for Distance Education in Digital Communications. In: IEE International Symposium on Engineering Education, 4-5 Jan 2001, London, UK.



In the past, the Open University has taught primarily through printed texts supported by television/video cassettes, audiocassettes and with limited face to face teaching at tutorials and summer schools. Developments in computer and communications technologies have provided new tools in the form of computer aided learning (CAL), email, computer conferencing and online resources. Here, the author describes the Open University's third-level Digital Communications course (T305) which aims to exploit the technology appropriately, and selects different media for different types of material.
