Using the Web for Teaching: School and Community Sites.
Lambrecht, Judith; Ballard, Joyce Kimberly
Widely available Internet resources can now be used effectively both in a formal educational setting as well as for the general public. This paper describes two ways health education professionals and educators have used the World Wide Web for teaching. In the first instance, a community education effort is described. It is intended to reach women concerned about breast cancer and assist them in locating information appropriate to their health needs. A key concern in preparing such a Web site was that of assuring easy access, particularly for socioeconomically disadvantaged women and families. In the second instance, the World Wide Web was used to augment classroom instruction by making course materials available electronically. The concern in this instance was whether instructional resources could be expanded for students in the "traditional" scheduled classes by encouraging use of the Internet resource through pre-selection.
