The provision of a range of online learning resources will minimise treating on-campus and distance-education students differently. Learning resources provided in a CD ROM could enhance the learning experiences of both on-campus and distance-education students. Supplementary resource materials provided to on-campus students can offer opportunities to enhance and broaden the learning experiences of distance-education students. Hence, both essential and supplementary learning resources should be made available to all students. Web-based learning and teaching approaches can increase and promote more active student engagement and interaction. It can provide easier or more equitable access by students to learning materials. Well-designed, interactive, up-to-date, fast to download, easy to read, easy to navigate, and good visual design are important parameters which can determine the effectiveness of CD-ROM for student learning.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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 the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
