Conceptually, OUM tutors are technologically astute. They employ technologies to not only bridge the physical distance between them and the learners they support, they also promote thinking and learning in ways which were not possible before the advent of the Internet. In this issue, we draw from the experiences of tutors and seasoned practitioners to explore the role of technology as well as emerging technologies in teaching and learning within the context of OUM. We also look at ways of overcoming technology shyness for tutors and learners as well as the practicalities and limitations of e-learning.
