Overview - University of Wollongong Teaching & Learning Journal


The continual increase of low-cost functionality available in desktop computing, the enhanced features offered by new and emerging educational delivery technologies and the introduction of powerful information retrieval environments have opened up a new possibility in teaching and leaming within a wider educational framework. During the last few years, support for multimedia and information technology based projects by universities and CAUT/CUTSD funding has resulted in a significant boost in the application of computers in tertiary education across the country. In this respect, the University of Wollongong has made substantial contributions in developing ideas and implementing computer-based modules to support teaching and leaming. The Educational Strategies Development Fund (ESDF) is one of the supporting mechanisms which provides funds for educational development initiatives.
