Web interfaces to enhance CAL materials: case studies from law and statistics
Both authors were seconded part-time to the Coventry University Teaching and Learning Task Force in the autumn of 1997. There are two main driving forces behind this Task Force. The first is the changing context of higher education, where increasing numbers of students, the shrinking unit of resource and an increasing emphasis on learning and teaching is generating increasing concern about the quality of the student experience. The second is to test how far communications and information technology (C&IT), highlighted in the Dealing Report (National Committee of Inquiry into Higher Education, 1997), could provide an important vehicle for more successful learning. At the same time there is an ongoing expansion of global learning resources available through the Internet. Harnessing these resources in a way that will enrich student learning became a focal point for both projects.
