Abstract

In January 1998, the Music Department and Media & Performance Department (now the School of Media, Music & Performance) received a TLQIS grant of £5000 to set up a networked multimedia system for the delivery of examples of good practice, criteria of assessment, tutorials and support and lectures. Part of the fundamental rationale for the purchase of a web server and accompanying software was to provide students and staff in the two departments with an environment that was unavailable through standard AIS access. This environment would give departmental members access not only to large volume digital storage but also to Internet technologies such as CGI techniques, Perl and C++ programming for the Web and a host of web multimedia technologies such as Real Audio and Video, Director and Shockwave movies etc. that at the time were unavailable. Implicit in this rationale was the thinking that both staff and students should have full use of these facilities including the design of web pages, CGI programming and large capacity file storage and transfer. Both departments run modules in various degrees that make explicit use of these technologies while other modules have fringe benefits. Aims: To provide examples of good practice in a range of Music and Media modules. To make the departments' assessment strategies transparent to students. To promote the use of computers in education. To encourage the development of computer-literate music and media professionals able to work effectively within the new virtual networked communities. To further enhance the global profiles of the Music and Media departments and hence the university. To explore programmed learning opportunities for people wishing to access higher education.
