Abstract

PCF1 // The TeleCampus online course database (http://database.telecampus.com) is a project of TeleEducation NB. It has implemented as a comprehensive online course database sponsored by Industry Canada, the World Bank, the Commonwealth of Learning, Le centre international pour le développement de l’inforoute en français, and other organizations. The online course database is a central repository of course information for students. Prior to the existence of the online course database, students wishing to access courses had to do some sophisticated searching. The on-line course database is the focus for any students wishing to take on-line courses as well as for any institutions and companies that wish to make their courses accessible. // Presently, there are more than 10 000 fully Web-based courses on line. In two years, we believe there will be more than 20 000. By being the first to establish a comprehensive on-line course database, we hope to capture the loyalties of students and institutions and become the world’s on-line course centre. Educational institutions and training companies from many different countries are beginning to offer courses and programmes on line using the World Wide Web. Students can now take these courses from anywhere that has an Internet connection, without being bound to any specific time, place or institution. //
