The editors' last book, Educational Development Through Information and Communications Technology , covered how best to implement ICT programmes. This text provides advice on how to ensure educational quality is maintained when ICT approaches are successfully adopted. It includes contributions from authors around the world who scrutinize the implications for using institution-wide ICT in teaching strategy and examine how quality assurance can be embedded in the development of ICT-based materials. Contents include: the impact of initiatives from external quality assurance agencies; quality in distance learning ICT programmes; assessment using ICT-based approaches; and the problem of plagiarism and the opportunities for cheating provided by ICT. Contributors offer practical advice on providing professional support for those using ICT in teaching and learning, covering common problems such as dealing with ICT anxiety, ICT support for postgraduate supervision and support through e-mentoring.
