[Extract] In this computer age, there is a push to provide courses on-line or at least provide course materials electronically. But what does this mean? To some academics this means placing lecture notes on the appropriate home page of the course or the discipline and providing students access to this resource. This alternative means of dispensing information is not enough for modern students who are computer literate when they enter university and expect their teachers to be up-to-date with new technologies. Total on-line course support is a very different approach best described as using the web interface for access to subject outlines, subject resources, course administration, library resources, and computer mediated communication such as e-mail, list servers, and web forums (Smith, 1999).
