UBS: The Worlds first E-University
Following the launch of the University
of Bums on Seats E-degree system, there has been much talk within the DFEE,HEFCE
and even in parliament on the topic of 'e-universities' and so-called 'e-distance
learning'. It seems that even Gorden Brown has shown an interest in our
revolutionary teaching system and has pledged to support Higher education
with the latest technology.
Since the launch of the e-degrees, we are
proud to announce that over 5000 people have successfully "graduated" from
the programme, showing that UBS truly leads the way into the 21st century.
Senior Academic Officer John Freemason
"If Britain is to keep its place in the
forefront of the e-superhighway, it must invest heavily in the so called
'.com' economy. If we as a university are to truly move forward, it is
vital that we all understand the technology behind 'e-commerce' and apply
it to our own unique institution by embracing many of the digital teaching
methods on offer such as 'videoconferencing','distance learning' and 'WAP'.
Neither Mr Freemason nor Professor Dubious
would confirm or deny recent rumours about a possible "virtual degree"
system to run alongside the "e-degrees". However an announcement was made
concerning the appointment of a "distance learning rapid-response task
force" within the University to co-ordinate future e-teaching development..
Writing in "CASH", the journal of senior
management, Professor Dubious announced "The university has decided to
appoint a task-force to design a strategy for discussion of a proposal
for a 'distance-learning' initiative. This team of crack managers will
consist of an overall co-ordinator and seven 'brainstomers'. WIth this
team, I feel confident that we can indeed build a bridge to the 21st century."
