Sessa, Anneliese
This paper describes the advantages of using computer bulletin boards systems (BBS) for distance learning, including the use of the New York City Education Network (NYCENET) to access various databases and to communicate with individuals or the public. Questions to be answered in order to determine the most appropriate software for running a BBS are listed; and the following public domain and shareware BBS software packages suitable for setting up a BBS for long distance learning are reviewed: Magpie, QBBS, PC Board, RBBS, and Opus. One commercial program--The Bread Board System (TBBS)--is also considered. A 1992 update of the information presented in this paper is appended. (ALF)
