Abstract:

As part of a new course structure, a four-week course had to be devised in which key spatial skills would be delivered to a large cohort of first-year undergraduate geography students. The use of PC-based computer aided learning (CAL) material and the World Wide Web (Web) have already gained some credibility in undergraduate courses in the UK and so the authors took the opportunity to explore their usefulness in a Sussex context. The development of the course received some internal funding and a consequent obligation was formally to evaluate its delivery. This paper outlines the rationale behind the course and examines the results of its delivery in the context of using technology to enhance learning.
