summary The aims of research carried out at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) under the umbrella of 'Online Planning' have been two fold. Firstly, to examine how new technologies can be used for the development of an Internet based planning system and secondly, how such technologies can enhance planning education. There has been considerable overlap between these two aims when real world applications have been introduced into the education environment. Teaching methods on a number of different courses at University College London, including the MSc in Virtual Environments, the MPhil in Town Planning and the BSc in Geography, have been developed to incorporate new technologies. This article describes progress to date and suggests possible uses of Internet based technologies for the teaching of topics relating to the design of the built environment.
