Emerging trends and challenges in Information technology education are shifting instruction-based learning towards the use of the Internet, with its capabilities for flexibility, networking and distributed nature. Web-based educational systems and virtual learning environments foster interactivity and provide an excellent medium for distance education delivery. Certain aspects of Information Technology education such as assessment, marking, provision of feedback and communicating complex concepts and technical terms provide challenging research concerns. The study presented in this paper provides an analysis of an undergraduate student sample regarding an Information Technology module. Blended teaching mode through a supporting virtual learning environment provided mechanisms for e- assessment and feedback for geographically dispersed students residing in two different campuses.
