Abstract

The uncertainty of writing educational materials online as multimodal and hypertextual documents presents a challenge to academics whose expertise lies in writing print based distance educational materials, print based academic papers and face-to-face education. In this paper a literacy approach is explored, one that fits into distance education traditions, while simultaneously centring pedagogy and technology within literacy. The concept metaphor l(IT)eracy signifies this approach. Its three dimensions - operational, cultural and critical - will be explored as a viable model of literacy.
