Abstract

This paper is a progress report on the design and delivery of two short WebCT tutorials for students, as part of a wider strategy to encourage further use of online learning within the University. The tutorials address issues of concern to the Department and to the Higher Education community as a whole: the indiscriminate use of Internet resources by students, poor acknowledgement of sources and inaccurate citation practice. The various stages of design and delivery, as informed by guidance in action research methods are described. Issues surrounding the use of WebCT, including interactivity and accessibility, are discussed and some preliminary results of student evaluations and learning experiences are presented.
