The Role of Live, Online Collaboration in Distance Learning.
Black, Deb
This paper discusses the three types of online learning-- asynchronous collaborative learning, sametime collaborative learning, and self-paced learning--and how these modes are supported by the Lotus LearningSpace product. The following requirements for distributed learning technology are then considered: (1) flexibility, specifically the capability to support all three modes of online learning; (2) scalability, including enabling the easy development and revision of courses that allows the instructor to integrate a wide range of materials, providing an administration environment that makes it easy to manage all activities of a virtual campus, and supporting access to student profiles and distributed media resources; and (3) open solutions, an open standards-based platform allowing all the activities of course design, instruction, collaboration, and evaluation to be shared among business partners.
