Abstract

The University of Southern Queensland Australia. The learning needs of students in bridging mathematics programs offered by distance education are well known. This paper examines the evolution of online initiatives designed to meet the needs of on and off campus students at a large Australian regional university. The developments, including specific support programs for pre-tertiary, engineering, statistics, economics and overseas students as well as generic mathematics support for all students, range from document delivery systems to interactive multimedia and online discussion groups. These are discussed within the context of online learning theory and the tension between delivery innovation and access restrictions.
