Abstract

The Open University has been, since its foundation, one of the forerunners of innovative learning methods for distance education, and one of the first academic institutions to start to extensively focus on e-learning.
While research has already been focusing on teaching methods for traditional subjects (as Maths or English Literature) - but fast-changing subjects, as most of the subjects in the field of ICT, pose additional challenges. While we have to draw a line between training and university education, there are many topics that are changing so fast that require specialised teaching methods (and infrastructure).
This paper reports about the experience of the Open University with teaching fast-changing subjects.
