    Abstract

    Online technology is increasingly used in higher education and training. Recent advances in information and communication technologies (ICTs) have enabled the implementation of an array of tools, such as online tutorials, videos, podcasts and vodcasts, which are utilised within the education and business sectors. In this chapter the authors describe a study analysing the uptake of a new online tool by a cohort of internal and distance first year microbiology students enrolled in Pharmacy, Medical Science and Biotechnology programs. Key findings included the central role publicising the electronic resources plays in the uptake of new technology. Potential advantages and pitfalls of implementing online ICTs in a discipline that traditionally relies on face-to-face instruction and very little virtual learning are discussed making this study relevant to any field considering the adoption of new ICTs. � 2010, IGI Global.
