Overview - University of Wollongong Teaching & Learning Journal


Since the inauguration of TV Open Learning in 1992 and PAGE (Professional and Graduate Education) in 1993 numerous undergraduate and postgraduate subjects have become available through television. Many of these subjects have been offered by departments in the Faculty of Commerce. Preparation of the video and written materials for these subjects involve many hours and cost thousands of dollars. Preliminaty evidence suggests that the quality of students' learning is at least as high as those exposed to traditional internal methods involving lectures and tutorials. Nevertheless, only limited use of the multimedia material has been used for internal teaching.
