The virtual university: Mickey Mouse or real learning?
Flew, Terry (1999) The virtual university: Mickey Mouse or real learning? Australian Quarterly, 71(1), pp. 34-41.
The new generation of digitised and converged communications and information technologies are fast making ‘virtual’ universities a reality. But what is the likely involvement of media, ente rta in ment and communications giants such as Murdoch’s News Corporation and Disney? What happens to the traditional university? While higher education is radically changing the world over, TERRY FLEW cautions that the changes are incremental rather than epochal and we shouldn’t blindly acccept claims they are fundamental.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
