In Australia, the presence of computer technologies in universities is no longer an emerging technological phenomenon. It has become the backbone of university communication, interaction and management. Computer-supported learning has permeated deeply several university faculties, particularly those who offer on-line courses. At the University of Tasmania, computer-supported learning has taken place in various forms ranging from individually developed courseware to university-wide computer-supported network. While it is important to provide adequate IT resources to support staff and students in teaching and learning, it is essential to understand the views and attitudes of students about their role of computer in teaching and learning. Stake-holders in various academic areas may perceive and value computer technologies differently due to their technological orientation, educational beliefs, and resource availability. This paper reports some findings of a study which examined the views of students and staff on the link between some educational concepts and principles and how they valued the role of computer in teaching and learning, with a special attention to the discourse of health education.
