Description

There is little doubt that modern computer technology is an integral part of the university experience, with a profound impact on information literacy. Since the late 1990’s - after the internet became publicly available and PC use widespread - academic institutions increasingly offered courses as distance learning experiences rather than in the traditional physical setting. Classwork in both formats entailed accessing library databases, communicating in online discussion forums and making use of various software programs (Goode, 2010; O’Hanlon, 2002, Chisholm et al, 1999).
