Digital Hemlock: Internet Education and the Poisoning of Teaching
University education is in crisis. Increasingly its funding is reduced and its relevancy questioned. The use of the Internet in university education and the delivery of online courses is seen as a cure-all, allowing tailored courses to be delivered to a wide student base with unprecedented immediacy and with a minimum of cost to the institution. Tara Brabazon questions these assumptions. She shows that the delivery of quality online education requires as much input and thought as conventional course delivery, and, although offered at minimal cost to the institution, it is the teachers who pay, in their own time and effort to maintain standards. She also shows that there is more to teaching and learning than can be delivered online.
