In higher education web-based learning environments have been used to support student learning, to provide a platform for a dynamic engagement between students and lecturers outside the physical classroom and to enhance student autonomy. This chapter will introduce the reader first of all to the use of web-based learning environments in higher education, followed by a description of the implications in United Kingdom (UK) higher education of web-based learning environments, and finally explore this context within a case study on the issues associated with the use of curriculum and learning resources within web-based course support systems and the implications on learning environments.
