that said, i would wanna begin by some illustrations/explanations on URLs: A typical URL is of the form:
Protocol://host/path/filename
For example the URL on the hompage of NUNet at University of Jos is:
http://www.unijos.edu.ng/nunet/index.htm
This means:
i. protocol is: HTTP
ii. host computer name: WWW
iii. second level domain name: unijos
iv. Top level domaian name: edu
v. CC Top level domain name: ng
vi. Directory name: nunet
vii. Filename: index.htm

services limit themselves to deep Web content.
Example of these are CompletePlanet (www.completeplanet.com), ProFusion
(www.profusion.com) and Invisible-we.net, search.com e.t.c.

today’s session titled Quality Assurance IN ICT EDUC, A PERSPECTIVE

what is the relevance for academic communities? : teachers are now facilitators

ICT in Education by Victoria L. Tinio

p12
How can ICTs help transform the learning environment into one that is
learner-centered?

? Creative Learning. ICT-supported learning promotes the manipulation of existing information
and the creation of real-world products rather than the regurgitation of received information.

? Integrative learning. ICT-enhanced learning promotes a thematic, integrative approach to
teaching and learning.This approach eliminates the artificial separation between the different
disciplines and between theory and practice that characterizes the traditional classroom
approach.

continuing expansion of connectivity
is enabling much greater access to
technology-mediated learning;
? new social software is transforming
the Web into a vast space for online
collaboration; and
? open educational resources herald
the emergence of a global intellectual
commons.

the emergence of a global intellectual

proposals, all stakeholders welcome

1. How the ICT course can be made to revolve instead on and around principles and
applications of ICTs, e.g. the phenomenon of technological convergence; the fact that university
education demands computer psychology, new media literacies etc.

2. How the student is being taught to appreciate the fact that ICT course lecturers and instructors
now assume facilitator roles and the supply of e-Resources to document this e.g. UNESCO publications etc.

3. Revisions and enhancements of ICT course content.

4. The inclusion of a Radio lecture series on ICT phenomena (for all ICT course students).

5. The use of the internet by lecturers and instructors for ICT course instruction e.g. blogging,
WikiEducator.org, ICT4D.org and other web 2.0 tools.
