New computer-based storage and communications technologies are making possible many progressive methods for the creation and delivery of educational resources. The role and importance of ,convention- al™ approaches to educational provision therefore need to be reevaluated. This is particularly so in the case of post-compulsory education and the growing need for facilities to support ,lifelong™ learning activ- ities within both academic and nonacademic organisations. This paper therefore discusses how new computer-based approaches to teaching and learning might be applied to the problems of supporting life- long learning within the context of postcompulsory education. These are based on the use of electronic course delivery (ECD) and a virtual university paradigm. The possibilities that exist are illustrated by means of a case study involving some recent work that we have been undertaking with respect to apply- ing ECD techniques within a conventional university framework.
