Goold, Annegret and Augar, Naomi 2006, Prototyping a wholly online IT unit, in Who's learning? Whose technology?: Proceedings of the 23rd Annual Conference of the Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education, Sydney University Press, Sydney, NSW.
One of the objectives of prototyping is to assess the reactions of users to a proposed system. Reactions are gathered through feedback which then influences the way a final system is designed. This paper reports on a face-to-face undergraduate unit that was converted to online mode (the prototype) in an attempt to provide feedback about an innovative problem-based learning approach for a new unit. The feedback from students through three online surveys was positive overall. The student feedback and the lessons learned by teaching staff through interaction with the prototype suggested how the design and development of the new unit should proceed.
