The Lecture Really IS Dead: Using Electronic Media To Teach On-Campus Courses.
Larison, Robert D.
During the 1996-97 academic year, a Principles of Management course was taught at Eastern Oregon State College to an on-campus group of juniors, using multiple technologies. The Internet was used as a source for print materials, resources, and research sites, and as a primary information dissemination medium. Electronic mail and listservs were utilized to establish, develop, and maintain asynchronous conferences and conferencing discussion of course materials. The course was designed to utilize the strengths of a number of media while avoiding their accompanying weaknesses. This paper begins with a review of the potential of computer conferencing. The course design is described in the second section, including organization of Internet materials, use of e-mail for conversation, use of listservs for group discussion, student portfolios, and grading. Student reaction to the course is discussed in the next section, focusing on results of a student survey that assessed effort required, communication with peers, class participation, the class environment, the technology, and the level of learning. The fourth section addresses instructor reaction to the course, including level of effort required, communications, and level of interaction. (MES)
