At Oxford Brookes University, Roger Suthren gets his students to produce posters on the Web rather than on paper. The disadvantages of paper posters are well known:

Electronic posters on the Web have several counter-balancing advantages:
+ always accessible (but see below)
+ easy to update
+ can be interactive
+ easy to copy and print

They are not, however, without disadvantages of their own:
- prior training required in using Web browser and editor
- screen size limitations
- problems of student access to computers
- difficulty for student groups to design and view collectively


Electronic posters
World-Wide Web (WWW)

This is one of the case studies which appears in the GDN Guide "Teaching and Learning Geography with Information and Communication Technologies"
