Psychology teaching in the 21st century

Guest Editor Christine Howe introduces this special issue on the future role of computer technology in higher education.

THE potential currently exists, by drawing a number of technological developments together, to deliver psychology degree courses using computer networks. It would be possible for students to present themselves to virtual administration suites for purposes of registration, to sit in virtual lecture theatres for multimedia teaching, and to visit virtual libraries to obtain follow-up materials. Should the students find the pressure too great, they would be able to chat to other students in virtual cafes, and they would of course sit their final examinations in virtual assessment halls.
