Jon Dron, C. Seidel, G. Litten

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapterpeer-review


Though led by the University of Brighton, the FdSc eSystems Design and Technology course has been designed and delivered almost exclusively by (initially) four Further Education (FE) colleges around Sussex. The four-year part-time course is delivered in blended mode, mainly online but with occasional face to face meetings. This chapter takes a look at the reasoning behind the original design of the course and describes some of the issues encountered in its first three years. It goes on to outline some of the ways that its problems were addressed, and gives some indications of the successes and otherwise of these interventions.
