Abstract

The chapter draws on the work of two national projects concerned with developing research-based approaches to learning and teaching and supporting these through technology. A pedagogic framework underpinning the design and delivery of such courses is outlined. In exploring the usability of online environments (programs) for research-based learning and teaching, the chapter discusses issues and needs in the context of operational usability. Factors relating to educational and technological usability are presented in the light of development of pedagogic principles for research-based learning, analysis of existing online systems and tools to support such courses, and evaluative case studies considering approaches in specific subject areas. The solutions to technological support implemented and evaluated through the pilot courses are discussed and generic educational good practice is highlighted throughout.
