Creating a Workshop on the World Wide Web: The Experiences of Internet 101.
Gale, Carolyn; Bourne, John R.; Thompson, Benjamin
This paper traces the development and maintenance of an introductory workshop delivered over the Internet, called the ALN (Asynchronous Learning Networks) Workshop on Internet Basics held at the Vanderbilt University Center for Innovation in Engineering Education (CIEE). The first section discusses creation and implementation issues, including software used, target audience, and course content. World Wide Web site design issues are addressed in the second section, including consistency in fonts, colors, and backgrounds, maximizing readability and minimizing download time, and presenting interactive examples. Data on usage are presented in the next section, including numbers of visitors, numbers of countries that visited the site, and most popular pages. The fourth section summarizes feedback obtained on the Internet Software Tutorials, including questions asked on the feedback form, sample comments, suggestions for improvement, and occupations of workshop users; most of the feedback focused on the Eudora e-mail tutorial. Modification, including addition of new tutorials and revision of incorrect/unclear information, is discussed in the fifth section. The final sections consider future plans and conclusions. A figure illustrates the FTP (file transfer protocol) tutorial screen. (AEF)
