Advanced learning technologies facilitate team teaching at the college/university level. Team teaching has been shown to benefit both students and faculty. This paper explores the benefits of using a course management package in an interdisciplinary team environment. Among those benefits are: better communication, student monitoring and support, flexibility in subject deliver, and fostering a collaborative environment. The success in the early developmental stage of integrating one such learning technology (Web Course Tools, or WebCT) into our course has seen the package move from a simple tool to an essential member of a teaching team.
