Abstract

Over the past decade, universities world-wide have had to come to grips with the flexible delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The university which is the focus of this research, has committed substantial funds towards the implementation of various modes of online learning. The sample for this study comprised 108 students who were enrolled in both undergraduate and postgraduate programs in a Western Australian university. The focus areas for investigation included reactions to online delivery, student perceptions of the rates and depth of participation and levels of engagement with the learning process. The results indicated that while the students were technically competent overall, issues associated with equity and access varied between the groups. The sample had also re-conceptualised the notion of personal which moved beyond simple physical proximity to enable the students to create their own community of learners.
