Formatted Abstract/Summary
For the last three years WebCT has been used to support a first year engineering course at the University of Queensland. This paper will examine why WebCT was first selected for this course. It will also look at the subsequent evolution of the course over the three years and how WebCT will continue to be used in its future development. The course, Introduction to Professional Engineering taken by all first year
engineering students, is used to introduce the students to a number of skills, which include life long learning, communication and team work. These skills are graduate attributes required by the Institution of Engineers of Australia. Each year the students doing this course are more confident computer users and the course needs to evolve to engage their active participation. In 2000 an extensive review of the subject was
carried out. Feedback from students, lecturers, tutors and librarians was obtained. The results of this review will be presented. Students sought a more interactive site with greater in context contributions from lecturers and tutors. This paper will examine ways in which the WebCT features and tools can be used to maximize support for student involvement in their learning.
