Abstract:
Most universities now offer a plethora of on-campus courses for students to choose from. However, many students are not able to take campus-based courses due to distance or timetabling limitations. An important option for such students has always been distance education. This paper focuses on the use of multimedia delivery technologies and their effect on how distance education is received and used by students. It discusses the creation, delivery and evaluation of an online version of an existing campus-based module. A quantitative comparison of the two methods of course delivery has been made and the results are then discussed in terms of examination performance and attrition. Confirming the initial hypothesis, no significant differences were found.
