The Electronic Studio and the Intranet: Network-Based Learning.
Solis, Carlos R.
The Electronic Studio, developed by the Rice University (Texas) Center for Technology in Teaching and Learning (CTTL), serves a number of purposes related to the construction and development of learning projects. It is a workplace, a display area, and a repository for tools, data, multimedia, design projects, and personal papers. This paper presents an overview of how the Electronic Studio concept can serve as an environment in which project-based learning can flourish by facilitating construction, collaboration, and sharing of projects and information objects. Discussion includes the design process; sample projects of the first iterations; refining the Electronic Studio; and differences between the Internet and intranets. Examples are provided of projects already under implementation that take advantage of intranet technologies such as server-based databases and scripts to enable users to participate in a collaborative knowledge base construction to create cross-cultural materials. Creating the technology environment is discussed, including preparing learners, network infrastructure, classrooms, uniformity of system configurations, World Wide Web-based databases, multimedia resource galleries, and use of a Web boarding system for communication.
