E-Learning for Distance Students: A Case Study from a UK Masters Programme

Abstract

The MSc Intelligent Systems (IS) and the MSc Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISR) programmes at De Montfort University are Masters level courses that are delivered both on-site and by distance learning. The courses have been running successfully on-site for 10 years and are now in the 7th year with a distance learning mode. Delivering material at a distance, especially where there is technical and practical content, presents a challenge and in this paper we focus on some of the techniques adopted to overcome these challenges. We present the course as a case study illustrating possible approaches for distance and e-learning. Information collected from student case studies is used to enhance our observations.
