The paper is in four sections: Section 1 summarises experiences with introducing students to markup software and its ability to link multimedia systems through cooperative endeavor; Section 2 describes a subject which introduces students who are to become information managers to the concept of customisation of network interfaces (gopher, Mosaic, Lynx, Netscape) and the tailoring of these to link to identified groups of subject resources; Section 3 discusses the use of the WWW as a vehicle for the delivery of course materials and shows how faculty administrative information can be integrated into course information for students; Section 4 describes the use of the WWW as a presentation tool in lectures. Some remarks about the lessons learnt are made, along with the future use of WWW as a teaching and learning tool.
