Abstract

Online technology is increasingly used in higher education and training. Recent advances in information and communication technologies have enabled the implementation of an array of tools, such as online tutorials, videos, podcasts and vodcasts, to be utilised within the education and business sectors. In this chapter we describe a study on the uptake of a new online tool by a cohort of internal and distance first year microbiology students enrolled in Pharmacy, Medical Science and Biotechnology programs. Key findings include the central role publicizing of electronic resources plays in the uptake of new technology. Potential advantages and pitfalls of implementing online technology in a discipline that has traditionally relied on face-to-face instruction, with very little virtual learning are discussed, making this study relevant to any field offering new online technologies
