ClassNet: Managing the Virtual Classroom.
Van Gorp, Mark J.; Boysen, Pete
Education continues to move on-line through the World Wide Web. Classrooms of students and teachers are no longer restricted by time or distance. ClassNet is a tool that manages these virtual classrooms; it automates many of the administrative tasks associated with global Internet classes. Through a simple interface of Web forms, students can perform activities such as class registration, assignment or test submission, and grade retrieval. Instructor activities include managing assignments, controlling class enrollment, communicating with students, and monitoring student progress. This paper highlights features of ClassNet's design and functionality and provides examples of its use. Topics discussed include: ClassNet design, underlying objects, and their functionality; requests and classes; assignments; class members--instructors, students, and proctors; organization of the ClassNet database; current uses at Iowa State University; and features and futures.
