Computer-Based Educational Communications at the University of Michigan.
Zinn, Karl L.; And Others
A series of studies at the University of Michigan have explored information systems as a basis for learning environments. In this paper, the staff at the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) looked at educational uses of computer-based conferencing, such as computer-based seminars and computer-assisted curriculum development. Other uses, such as computer-based committee and computer-aided proposal preparation, have found the basic software developed at CRLT to be applicable. A rationale for the use of computer assistance in seminars, curriculum development, and other educational activity, with a check list for the potential organizer of a conference is given. Data on phase one of a study of conferencing applied in seminars and individual study, along with costs, time commitments, and benefits are presented, along with a discussion of implications of computer-based educational communications for the University of Michigan.
