Educational technology and the mass lecture: A restatement of fundamental issues
AbstractMany more students and staff come into contact with basic educational technology in lecture theatres and classrooms than with computer based education or open learning systems approaches. Such delivery systems must be reliable, user-friendly and supported by well trained staff. The issues of ensuring proper lecture theatre design and fit out to ensure ease of use of educational technology and the need to attract sufficient budgets to do the task properly, are central if the use of educational technology is to become a fundamental feature of teaching and learning at the tertiary level in a time of mass lectures and static budgets.
