AbstractGeneral terms Prior to discussing this research, it is necessary to clarify the way in which certain terms have been used in this paper: ‘Traditional learning ’ refers to the learning which occurs during face-to-face teaching. The teacher conveys information (written and oral) to the student directly. ‘E-learning ’ (as defined by Pollard and Hillage, 2001) is &amp;quot;the delivery and administration of learning opportunities and support via computer, networked and web-based technology to help individual performance and development. &amp;quot; In some cases the teacher will not provide a series of facts to the students, but ask them to locate information from online sources. The teacher becomes a facilitator, as opposed to the keeper and transmitter of information. This approach is favoured by the action learning community; &apos;ICT &apos; information and communication technology; Edutainment has come to have a specific meaning: products that are educational but that have some entertainment value, the term typically applies to games, stories, children’s software in which the entertainment elements are obvious.
