Cyberspace Class: Rewards and Punishments. ERIC Digest.
Shoemake, Barbara R.
This Digest details how one professor of public relations has developed and put into practice a class in "cyberspace." The Digest first provides background on online communication techniques and the explosion of online teaching at the university level, and then tells how a professor, with the help of a summer grant from her university, developed her course in public relations campaigns. The largest section of the Digest describes the false starts in choosing an online system that was compatible and comfortable for both students and teacher and how the solution was reached which allowed for effective teaching and learning in a virtual environment. The Digest concludes by listing problems, benefits, and positive outcomes of the experience in cyberspace. (NKA)
