Developing and running a web-based programme in Pharmaceutical Science: new roles, new strategies?
2006 (English)In: ICDE Conference on Open Learning & Distance Education, New Delhi, India, New Delhi, India, 2006Conference paper (Other academic)
In 2003 the University of Umeå, Sweden, started a web-based Pharmaceutical Science programme. The programme was developed in response to the need for qualified pharmacists in rural, sparsely populated areas. A web-based programme offers many possibilities such as increased access to higher education for citizens living in remote areas, but at the same time the development and delivery of such a programme are associated with difficulties, such as the creation of a favourable online environment and the introduction of online teaching into a ‘traditional’ university setting.
