Abstract

A systems view is taken of curriculum development in business education in order to assess the way in which Interact, the CSU online teaching and learning system, impinges on the curriculum. An examination of the history of the development of distance education reveals that there are three phases. All three forms are in evidence in the use of Interact. Moreover, the style of approach taken by the lecturer to the use of Interact, for example the extent of two-way communication, clearly affects the way in which the curriculum needs to be developed and presented to students. Also influential are learning styles and what students want or expect from Interact transactions. The paper attempts to assess progress so far and what this has meant (and will likely mean) for development of the curriculum.
