Can Academics Afford to Use E-Mail?

Johann Messing

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The use of information and communication technologies - in particular, e-mail, forums and the Internet - in combination with new pedagogical insights on collaborative and co-operative learning may create scope for better learning and teaching environments; but such use comes with many hidden workload costs. In the implementation of online learning and teaching strategies, such costs are rarely fully accounted for or even recognised. This paper will investigate some of changes in workload using a study of e-mail activity over 10 years to exemplify the issues.
