Abstract

This briefing describes an Information Communication Technology (ICT) project in which academics from five geographically dispersed tertiary institutions collaborated in the design and implementation of an online teaching module on women's health and well-being. The module used the transformative possibilities offered by ICT to enable students from a variety of geographic and cultural contexts to collectively explore the concepts of women's health and well-being. This briefing examines how this web-based module enabled the authors to bring students from South Africa, Uganda, Jamaica and Israel together in an online learning environment and outlines the role of ICT in designing the module as a collaborative learning space. The experiences of participating academics and students, particularly those within the African context, are presented.
