Teaching staff from the Dutch university will receive training on the WebCT Vista software, which is set to replace the mix of virtual-classroom systems used. 'We want to combine our virtual classroom system to improve collaboration between faculties,' says Ineke Lam, implementation project leader at Utrecht University. The skills element to the move began in June 2003, with training for 15 staff who will then pass the knowledge on to lecturers throughout the university. The campus-wide tool will provide virtual-classroom tuition for up to 23,000 students, in addition to traditional lectures and seminars.
