Abstract

This article reports on a project that explored the incidental learning achieved through the implementation of a Web-based learning setting. In particular, the study explored the capacity of the environment to develop the generic skills of the students using the skills framework proposed by Bennett, Carre, and Dunne (1999). The results showed that the learning environment provided many opportunities for students to practise a broad range of generic skills and that the students perceived this practice to contribute in significant ways to their skills development. The article concludes with a discussion of the outcomes and a description of future planned research.
