Abstract

This paper is a report on the development of a strategy for online learning in South African law schools, using the Legal Method module as a case study. In developing the strategy, a number of issues were considered, including national trends in online learning and the importance of various pedagogical principles. To ensure that the strategy was relevant and sustainable, questionnaires were formulated to ascertain the opinions of the Legal Method module learners and the Howard College School of Law lecturers, on the integration of online learning technology in undergraduate law modules. Both the learners and the lecturers concerned found that the introduction of online learning technology in law modules was both desirable and practical. Following national trends, then, a sustainable strategy for the augmentation of law modules with online learning technology was developed.
