Abstract

A modern teaching and learning environment includes many modes of delivery, including face-to-face, online and offline. The internet is evolving into a place where individualization has become common and connectedness a cornerstone, and this is emphasised in what has become known as Web 2.0. How can this paradigm be used in a teaching and learning environment? Developing a web based teaching and learning system centered on an individual that allows connection to the internet's resources would be consistent with this paradigm. This paper investigates an integrated framework that has been developed for a teaching and learning environment that is centered on managing the information and knowledge of an individual teacher. Prototype web-based systems have been developed and trialed in an attempt to identify suitable features and functionality. The current prototype, termed the virtualMe, is described, and an analysis of responses from a survey of current and potential users is discussed.
