The Department of Geography at the University of Durham was one of three departments to pilot duo (Durham University Online) in October 2000. duo is the University’s web-based learning environment. (http://duo.dur.ac.uk/), which uses the commercial product Blackboard (http://www.blackboard.com/). Evaluations of the use of duo were undertaken within the Department of Geography at the beginning of the academic year in 2000 and across the whole University in April/May 2001. The success of duo with first-year undergraduates and with staff in the Geography Department has resulted in its use being extended to all second-year modules. This has also encouraged other departments to embed duo within their teaching. The article will hopefully be of interest to other GEES departments who might be considering delivering their curricula through an electronic learning environment.
