Abstract

The move from traditional paper-based distance education subject materials to the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) has increased the ways in which students can engage with their lecturers, peers and the unit materials. In this paper, strategies for enhancing print-based learning resources are discussed. These include concept mapping by which the conceptual structure of a unit can be articulated, and online communication that can enhance the interactions between students and teachers. A review of student responses to concept mapping indicates a general acceptance of the tool, with comparisons of assessment grades between successive years of students suggesting an improvement for students who were exposed to concept mapping in conjunction with online communication. The study highlighted several curriculum issues that need further work.
