A search of the World Wide Web reveals more than a million pages dedicated to culture and/or the study of cultural values. It would be reasonable to assume, therefore, that cyberspace would be a particularly fruitful learning arena for students. This essay presents the results of a pilot cultural studies module using the web being undertaken in the Department of Print Media, Publishing and Communication at Napier University, Edinburgh. It outlines the background and rationale for attempting such a module, explains the software (FirstClass) and methods used, and concludes with initial results, impressions and experiences of students and staff using these new teaching methods and techniques to explore changing cultural and cybercultural identities.
