Myth 4

Purchasing networks and computers is the most expensive part of providing technology for teaching and learning.

Taken out of an educational environment the truth of this statement cannot be judged. The price of technology, whether costly or inexpensive, is irrelevant if it is not used properly so that students learn. Purchasing and installing technology does not translate into quality education without effort on the part of faculty, trainers, technical support, administrators, instructional designers and others. Only after the pedagogy and online course design have been addressed should the price of technology be measured.
