Abstract

There is a growing expectation from distance learners that their learning and teaching environment will be on-line. Limitations on bandwidth to the home has so far constrained the richness of such environments. A hybrid solution to this problem combines the immediacy of the Internet with the versatility of DVD Technology. This versatility allows the disc-based material to be integrated with web based material or used off-line as a self-contained learning environment. All content which is not computer dependant such as audio-visual material, can be viewed with a domestic DVD player from the same DVD disc.
