Timber Engineering Online.

  This paper highlights some of the opportunities, challenges and issues encountered in creating online teaching and learning materials for timber engineering that provide an experience equivalent to face-to-face teaching for the student. It introduces the Timber Engineering Online project at Napier University’s Centre for Timber Engineering in Edinburgh, which aims to establish best-practice for flexible online education for the forest and timber industries with respect to learner needs as well as those of the education providers. The project is part-funded under the European Social Fund Scottish Objective 3 Programme 2000-2006, which aims to improve economic growth and create jobs in Scotland.
