    Abstract

    This paper revisits Laurillard's text Rethinking University Teaching: a framework for the effective use of educational technology (Laurillard 1993) in light of specific developments in educational technology. Where, for example, does her text stand in relation to the use of the World Wide Web (WWW) in education and, in particular, how does it relate to the claims made for collaborative and group-work supported by web-based learning environments? On looking more closely at her text in order to reevaluate its usefulness, it is clear that other issues merit a critical view, namely, her proposals concerning UK-wide funding for educational technologies. Having come to the end of a ten-year funding cycle for UK-wide C&IT initiatives with associated reports and evaluation literature, it is possible to assess the impact of this work more fully.
