The growth in availability of the Internet permits a greater variety in the delivery of the IS curriculum than was hitherto possible. This paper examines the various delivery techniques that might be employed in a typical university IS course, and comments on these from the standpoint of student preference. In spite of the technological basis for much information systems study, and their exposure to novel teaching methods like videoconferencing and the World Wide Web, students still prefer traditional teaching techniques like lectures, problem solving/discussion classes and practicals. Opting for modern teaching technologies to deliver all or part of the IS curriculum will need careful planning if potential student resistance is to be overcome.
