Demonstration and Panel Discussion Synopsis
AbstractThe aim of this session was to familiarise workshop participants with some of the web-based options available for flexible teaching and learning, by showing just a few of the more commonly used tools. After that there was a question and answer session with a panel of experienced academics. The tools chosen were: TopClass, currently used at the University of Technology, Sydney; WebCT, currently used at the University of Western Sydney Hawkesbury; and WebTeach, developed at and currently used by The University of New South Wales.
