This case study describes experiences gained through the use of online technology to support teaching in 2 units on interactive multimedia. In the first unit, online support and progress reporting was provided through an email list server. The second unit was specifically re-engineered to make optimal use of online collaborative activities, supported by the WebCT course management system.

The experience gained in facilitating the online discussions associated with these units has been compiled into a set of guidelines about how to make effective use of discussion tools. This staff development resource has been summarised in the second part of the case study.
