Abstract

In this paper the authors recount the process of developing an html based trial web site at short notice, designed to support the presentation of lectures and tutorials to a large undergraduate student cohort with minimal funding and a short time frame. The decision to embrace the process emanated from the need to find a mechanism that may alleviate some of the logistical problems associated with presenting a first year statistics subject 'using an experiential approach', to over 300 first year undergraduate students in the traditional face to face delivery mode. Few academics appreciate the fact that migration to a web based delivery mode of their subject materials is an involved process which can only be successful if several demands are met including: thorough planning; a commitment to the restructuring of materials; re-assessment of the pedagogical approach taken and an awareness that their workload will increase.
