Deakin Online: An Evolving Case Study

Deakin Online: An Evolving Case Study

This paper describes the planning, implementation and current progress of the Deakin Online Project that aims to establish a virtual campus for Deakin University. Strategies for e-teaching and e-learning are analyzed and the dangers and opportunities are identified. Approaches to the preparation of both students and faculty for working in the online environment are discussed including online training, mentoring schemes and a dedicated teaching and learning support unit. An in-depth account of the project is presented which is potentially useful to any organization considering embarking on online teaching on a large scale.
