As a pragmatic contribution to discussion about how skills should be integrated into the curriculum in the post-Dearing era, this paper draws on experience of a course which has been running for two years alongside the modular degree at the University College of St Mark and St John. It considers how computer-assisted learning (CAL) can be integrated into a skills curriculum for undergraduates. It argues that CAL can serve the dual purpose of providing a flexible approach to developing a range of skills and supporting the development of competence in information technology. The judicious selection of appropriate CAL materials from a range of sources, carefully programmed into the student experience, is shown to be an appropriate learning strategy for a skills curriculum. Finally, it argues that without the development of supportive IT strategies, skills-oriented courses are threatened by resource constraints.
